Siko­rski is na­tive Mary­lan­der, a pas­sion­ate and ex­pe­ri­enced sports­man, and has been a steady vol­un­teer for CCA. As a long­time par­tic­i­pant and cur­rent Chair of the as­so­ci­a­tion’s Gov­ern­ment Re­la­tions Com­mit­tee, he has a thor­ough un­der­stand­ing of many is­sues that af­fect our fish­eries.

He is a mem­ber of the Striped Bass and At­lantic Men­haden Ad­vi­sor y Panels for the At­lantic States Marine Fish­eries Com­mis­sion, the Chair­man of the Sport Fish­eries Ad­vi­sory Com­mis­sion to Mary­land DNR, and has been a fre­quent at­tendee to the Mid-At­lantic Fish­ery Man­age­ment Coun­cil in re­cent years.

CCA Mar yland is one of 17 state chap­ters of the Coastal Con­ser­va­tion As­so­ci­a­tion, which has 100,000 mem­bers na­tion­ally. The non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion works to con­serve, pro­mote, and en­hance Mar yland’s marine re­sources.

* * * Trout time The Mary­land DNR has started stock­ing about 338,000 brown, golden, and rain­bow trout through­out the state, in­clud­ing plac­ing trout in the Tuck­a­hoe Creek this past week.

“The trout stock­ing pro­gram raises sev­eral hun­dred thou­sand trout at our hatch­eries, which are stocked for an­glers of all ages and skill lev­els,” Mary­land Fish­ing and Boat­ing Ser­vices Di­rec­tor David Blazer said. “Our team pro­vides an­glers with di­verse trout fish­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, from the soli­tude of a moun­tain stream to an out­ing at your lo­cally stocked pond with fam­ily and friends.”

The stock­ing pro­gram is funded by the sale of non-tidal fish­ing li­censes, trout stamps, and Fed­eral Sport Fish Restora­tion Pro­gram funds.

The list of stocked lo­ca­tions is avail­able at bait and tackle shops, de­part­ment ser­vice cen­ters, and on­line.
