Mary­land to of­fer li­cense-free fish­ing days in June and July

The Dundalk Eagle - - PUZZLES -

The Mar yland De­par tment of Nat­u­ral Re­sources (DNR) in­vites new or ex­pe­ri­enced an­glers to en­joy Mary­land’s Li­cense Free Fish­ing Days on Satur­days, June 2 and 9, and on Wed­nes­day, July 4.

This is an op­por­tu­nity for Mary­lan­ders to test their fish­ing skills with­out the need to ob­tain a fish­ing li­cense, trout stamp or reg­is­tra­tion, DNR of­fi­cials note.

“Free fish­ing days are the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to give the sport a try be­fore de­cid­ing whether to get a li­cense,” Fish­ing and Boat­ing Ser­vices Di­rec­tor David Blazer said. “Fish­ing is open from the surf of the At­lantic Ocean to the moun­tain streams of West­ern Mary­land.”

All an­glers must fol­low cur­rent size and catch lim­its. An on­line guide is avail­able at www.ereg­u­la­tions.com/ mary­land/fish­ing/ and a printed ver­sion can picked up at many ser vice cen­ters or lo­cal bait-and-tackle shops. The depart­ment also has dozens of other re­sources to help new or ex­pe­ri­enced an­glers, in­clud­ing an­gler ac­cess maps, Click Be­fore You Cast and fish iden­ti­fi­ca­tion charts.

An­glers who de­cide to get or re­new their li­cense can do so on­line, by phone or at a li­cens­ing and reg­is­tra­tion ser­vice cen­ter.
