Free Fishing Fridays return to Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

On Fridays from now through June 18, families are invited to join the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Rising Tide Program for afternoons of FREE fishing off CBMM’s docks.

Both fishing gear and waterfront access are available for participants in Free Fishing Fridays, from 3:30–5:30pm. Individual fishing licenses are not needed, but parental supervision is required for anyone 8-years-old or younger.

“Since 2015, Rising Tide has provided a welcoming, relaxed environment for students in grades six–nine to learn hands-on skills through after school and summer programming,” said Youth Programs Coordinator Nina Graham. “Our Fishing Fridays are just one more way to reach those students and to help keep them engaged with the Bay. We’re always thrilled to be able to provide opportunities like this to expand access to the waterfront for those who may not have it otherwise.”
