"Huck Finn" Youth Fishing Day on Stony Run: 10/29

Huck Finn Day

Stony Run Park

10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Sunday, October 29, 2017

 

The Maryland Chapter of Trout Unlimited (MDTU) will sponsor the fourth annual Huck Finn Day, a fishing and environmental education event for children 15 years old and younger on Stony Run between Wyndhurst Avenue and West Cold Spring Lane on Sunday, October 29, 2017, 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 450 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.
