To date there have been four fishing trips with more scheduled on Oct. 23, 29 and 30, weather permitting.

The recreational outreach project will eventually expand within DNR to the Maryland Park Service, Wildlife & Heritage Service and beyond. A new website offers information on the program, photographs and comments from veteran participants.
