Fishing Our Home Waters, Upcoming Programs, Trout Pen Overview, and Travelogue

By Andy Mekelburg
In December, club members worked with Maryland DNR Fisheries to get (most) our trout out of the pen and into the stream.

Come join us as we celebrate the end of the year that we can’t say out loud! For our first 2021 meeting, we are going to talk about our home waters, Catoctin Creek. Rick Loose will provide an overview of one our most vital club activities — the trout pen. For those who have never jumped in the pen with us, or those who have, Rick will provide the secrets to raising monster fish.

After that, we will have a “local” travelogue focusing on the Catoctin, welcoming any of our members who have caught those monster fish to tell us all about it.

In addition, we are going to discuss some of our new initiatives – Advanced Fly Tying Roundtable, Mentor program, and our revised Outings program. This meeting is designed for any members who are planning to fish in 2021. We will supply the information for joining our Zoom call in a separate email. For those who have never used Zoom, or have had problems, let us know — perhaps we can help. The meeting will be on Jan. 12 at 7pm.
