The MD DNR Fishing & Boating Services and partners in local communities are running free Youth Fishing Rodeos for nearly 5,000 children, ages 3–15. Participants learn basic angling skills in a safe environment; develop an understanding of the environment and natural resources during an experience that fosters interest in conservation and fishing. The program is raising more than 6,000 hybrid sunfish for this event with support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Sport Fish Restoration Program. Because of space limitations, would-be attendees should call the contact at each venue to register.
