THE OSTERVILLE ANGLERS’ CLUB

established 1988

Located on the shores of Crosby Basin, the Osterville Anglers’ Club is a family oriented club, committed to promoting and advancing the sport of recreational fishing. With an active and dedicated membership, the Club sponsors a number of fishing tournaments, social activities and education events throughout the year. What started in the late 1980s as the idea of a small group of local sportsmen – to form a fishing club where the entire family could be involved in angling and other related activities – has evolved into what is today a premiere fishing club on Cape Cod.
