DNR Launches Maryland Youth Fishing Club

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has opened
its virtual doors to a free online fishing clubhouse for anglers
between the ages of 5 and 15.

“This fishing club is a fun and helpful way to instill a sense
of community and environmental stewardship in young anglers and
their families,” said DNR’s Fisheries Director Tom O’Connell.

The club will allow DNR to interact with young anglers and their
mentors to promote upcoming youth events across Maryland, share
fishing stories on the youth angler’s log and access dependable
information on how to succeed in fishing.

“We eventually hope to learn from our young anglers what works
for them in developing an appreciation for the outdoors, so we may
better support them in their endeavors,” said Letha Grimes, the
club’s coordinator.

Membership in the Maryland Youth Fishing Club is free and
subject to parental approval. New members will receive a Maryland
Youth Fishing Club Patch and access to helpful information from DNR
and experts from partner fishing organizations across the
State.
