Thank you for your interest in the Rochester Junior Bassmasters (RJBM). I would like to take this opportunity to describe what the club has to offer.   

           The RJBM (age 0-15) is a youth fishing club that was formed under our parent club the Rochester Bassmasters (age 16 and over). Both groups are B.A.S.S. recognized clubs. TThe Adult club will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2025 and has been providing youth fishing opportunities for most of those years.

     The mission of the RJBM is to provide its members a family oriented club focused on teaching fishing, ethics, sportsmanship, and conservation. We run youth fishing tournaments from shore on local ponds, and from boats on area lakes and bays. We are active in our community with conservation events and community service. Our club is sponsored by the adult RBM club and several local companies.

     All youth event participants must be members. Membership simply involves providing some basic information and a $30 yearly membership fee. The fee goes directly to B.A.S.S. making the youth a member of B.A.S.S. and the BASS Nation. Both include periodic magazines and access to their national website information.

     Additional information and updates can be found on our club Facebook page. Visit our YOUTH FACEBOOK page to join the Junior Bassmasters facebook group. You can see our upcoming youth events here.
