Boat Fishing for Youth - Rod & Reef Slam!

Boat trips will leave the dock at 10am and 1pm with Cruise the Chesapeake on board the Samantha Belle, a classic Chesapeake Bay deadrise style boat.

Trips will go to Ft. Carroll and focus their fishing at an oyster reef undergoing restoration and highlight the value of healthy habitats in our waterways. Able crew and volunteers will assist young anglers with fishing techniques and provide all necessary gear for the day on the water.

Additional boats will be provided for youth anglers and their guardians by volunteers through the Angler’s Sport Center Combos for Kids program. These trips will also follow a 10am and 1pm departure time, but will offer more flexibility for smaller groups of anglers in and around the Patapsco River.

Fishing equipment and safety equipment will be provided for all participants, but we encourage you to bring your own equipment if you’d like. Space is limited and provided on a first come first serve basis, so please sign up today and our team will work to provide a meaningful fishing experience on September 16th.

Can you volunteer?  Contact us today to sign up!
