Recreational anglers increasingly vocal in management issues

There was a time, not too long ago, when recreational fishermen in the Chesapeake Bay watershed focused mostly on what was on the end of their line, on how many fish they could catch and how large they could be.

No more. Recreational anglers have launched an assertive campaign to influence fishery management. The effort has been most dramatic in Maryland, where the anglers are a regular presence at Department of Natural Resources meetings and public hearings.
