Outings

Let’s Go Fishing!

We are seeking sponsors for outings large and small to fish at locations throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, and beyond. Are you interested in hosting a trip? Send us a message if you’d like to plan an event — be sure to include the date, location, outing details, the outing leader’s name, primary fish species you will be targeting, and any other details you wish to share. Outings organizer Mike Holland will follow-up with you .

Interested in fishing for shad at Fletcher’s Cove? While we can’t plan an outing for this location given the need for special equipment (sinking line, a boat), club member Dan Neuland offers an excellent presentation with all you need to know if you’d like to go catch some shad.

Contact us if you’d like to sponsor an outing. If you’d like to sign up for a scheduled outing, you can REGISTER HERE

As the Spring season is about to bloom, we are starting to line up our 2024 Outings. A few members have stepped up to host and we’re expecting to add more to the line up.  An outing is as simple as showing up at your choice of fishing spots and have others join you. One new feature we going to try, something I call “demographic” outings, in an effort of putting people with similarities together. I’ll be hosting the first three at Rockdale Run, a creek that runs through my property.  No need for waders, experience or even equipment. I also invite those who don’t fish to come out, plenty to do and see out here.   — Andy Mekelburg, Outings Coordinator
