The Maryland Chapter of Trout Unlimited (MDTU) will sponsor the sixth annual 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 27, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (NOTE: NEW EVENT DATE IS NOVEMBER 3)

MDTU’s tent will be set up at the base of Oakdale Rd. adjacent to Stony Run Park, where their volunteers will provide fly-fishing and fly-tying demonstrations. This section of Stony Run will be stocked with 300 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 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. A fishing license is not 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 in advance of the event (on Friday 10/25) or assist in MDTU’s youth outreach, please contact Tom Gamper at (410) 685-3582,
