Huck Finn Day Event On Stony Run

The Maryland Chapter of Trout Unlimited (MDTU) will sponsor a Huck Finn Day, a fishing and environmental education event for children 15 years old and younger on Stony Run between Wyndhurst Avenue and W. Cold Spring Lane on Sunday, October 26, 2014, 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 they 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 six 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  or connect with the MDTU web site: www.mdtu.org for information.
