Wednesday, January 8, 2014
Bethesda-Chevy Chase Services Building
7:15p assemble; 8pm Program
Fishing for Speckled Trout and Redfish on Maryland's Eastern Shore
with Kevin Josenhans, Chesapeake Bay and Eastern Shore Fly Fishing and Light Tackle Guide
Kevin Josenhans Fly Fishing has been guiding satisfied fishermen since 1993, and is known as one of the Chesapeake's premier guide flats fishing for striped bass, speckled trout, bluefish, redfish, flounder and more. The fishing for speckled trout and redfish is on the rebound in this area. One of Kevin's favorite fishing venues is Tangier Sound, which he calls a "hidden jewel" of the Chesapeake. Lush underwater grasses cover miles of saltwater flats, interspersed with dozens of unspoiled marsh islands and tidal creeks. Shorebirds and waterfowl are abundant.
Josenhans Fly Fishing has been featured on ESPN's Fly Fishing America and Outdoor Life Network's Fly Fishing the Tidewaters. Visit Kevin's website.
Contact George Gaines to dine with the speaker before the meeting at 5:30p at La Madeleine, 7607 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda, MD.
Meetings are open to the public. Chapter meetings are held at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Services Building, 4805 Edgmoor Lane, downtown Bethesda, MD (right behind the Bethesda Metro station). Public parking at 75 cents per hour is available in the County parking garage below the building.

NOVEMBER CHAPTER MEETING
November 13, 2013
New Tailwater Trout Fisheries for Maryland,
with Mark Staley, Central Region Fisheries Manager, Maryland DNR Fisheries Division
Mark Staley of the Maryland DNR, and Jim Robinson of the Potomac-Patuxent TU Chapter spoke about an exciting new development right in our own backyard, the potential for a year-round coldwater trout fishery in the portion of the Patuxent River below the Brighton Dam. This project may offer opportunities for stream improvement work for those who enjoy getting their hands dirty like we did on Beaver Creek. We will share more information as it becomes available.
