Huck Finn Day: Sunday October 30

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 Road on Sunday, October 30, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

MDTU’s tent will be set up at the Oakdale Road 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 (on Thursday 10/27, at 1pm) or assist in MDTU’s youth outreach, please contact Tom Gamper at (410) 685-3582, e-mail:
