Huck Finn Day 2015!

The Maryland Chapter of Trout Unlimited (MDTU) will sponsor the second annual Huck Finn Day, a fishing and environmental education event for children 15 years old and younger on Stony Run between Wyndhurst Avenue and Oakdale Rd. on Sunday, November 1, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. MDTU’s tent will be set up at the Oakdale Rd. lawn section of Stony Run Park, where their volunteers will provide fly-fishing and fly-tying demonstrations. This section of Stony Run will be stocked with 400 rainbow trout. Children interested in fishing must have their own equipment and be accompanied by a parent or guardian. There will be a free raffle for four spinning rods. At the end of the event at 2:00 p.m., the stream will then be open for fishing to “children of all ages” with a Maryland fishing license and trout stamp. No fishing license is required for children 15 years old and younger. A two fish limit is set for all those who wish to take fish.

If you would like to help stock the stream or assist in MDTU’s youth outreach, please contact Tom Gamper at (410) 685-3582, e-mail: tgamper@smp-architects.com
