The community calendar is a great place to find out what is happening in Charles County and in the surrounding area. This calendar was created to help parents find fun things to do that are cheap or free. I have heard a great deal of parents say there is nothing to do. While at times this can be true; I have found that it is more just about knowing where to look!

But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

You are required to observe all fishing laws and regulations. A free MD/PRFC angler registration is also required for anglers fishing without a license in designated tidal license free fishing areas, you may register online. You can see a list of license free locations on the following page: License Free Fishing Areas – 
      2. CHARLES COUNTY LOCATION IS –
        Friendship Landing Park-4705 Friendship Landing Road Nanjemoy, MD 20662
      3. The second option is that Maryland hosts Free Fishing Days. During a free fishing day, a person may catch and possess finfish in the tidal and nontidal waters of the State for recreational purposes without an angler’s license, Chesapeake Bay sportfishing license, or any fishing stamp normally required by the State, but shall otherwise observe all fishing laws and regulations. Maryland’s free fishing days are the first two Saturdays in June and July 4.

      The first option is there are specific areas in Maryland that are designated License Free Fishing Areas throughout the tidal portions of the Chesapeake Bay and one nontidal location. You are required to observe all fishing laws and regulations. A free MD/PRFC angler registration is also required for anglers fishing without a license in designated tidal license free fishing areas, you may register online.

    3. The second option is that Maryland hosts Free Fishing Days. During a free fishing day, a person may catch and possess finfish in the tidal and nontidal waters of the State for recreational purposes without an angler’s license, Chesapeake Bay sportfishing license, or any fishing stamp normally required by the State, but shall otherwise observe all fishing laws and regulations. Maryland’s free fishing days are the first two Saturdays in June and July 4.
    4. Lastly, all those folks under 16 years of age are allowed to fish without a license.

      Free Fishing

      ​Options for fishing in Maryland without a fishing license

      1. Normally a license is required to Fish in Maryland but there are a few exceptions to this requirement.
        The first option is there are specific areas in Maryland that are designated License Free Fishing Areas throughout the tidal portions of the Chesapeake Bay and one nontidal location. You are required to observe all fishing laws and regulations. A free MD/PRFC angler registration is also required for anglers fishing without a license in designated tidal license free fishing areas, you may register online. You can see a list of license free locations on the following page: License Free Fishing Areas – 
      2. CHARLES COUNTY LOCATION IS –
        Friendship Landing Park-4705 Friendship Landing Road Nanjemoy, MD 20662
      3. The second option is that Maryland hosts Free Fishing Days. During a free fishing day, a person may catch and possess finfish in the tidal and nontidal waters of the State for recreational purposes without an angler’s license, Chesapeake Bay sportfishing license, or any fishing stamp normally required by the State, but shall otherwise observe all fishing laws and regulations. Maryland’s free fishing days are the first two Saturdays in June and July 4.
      4. Lastly, all those folks under 16 years of age are allowed to fish without a license.
