The St. Mary’s County Recreation and Parks Department notified the Southern Maryland Recreational Fishing Organization (SMRFO) that they are anticipating 150 children participating in the “Hooked on Fishing” event being held at Point Lookout State Park on July 17th as part of the county’s summer camp program.
SMRFO volunteers assist children fishing off the pier. They also maintain the rods for this event. On Thursday, January 16th, 27 SMRFO volunteers changed out the fishing line on 168 fishing rods. Their January monthly meeting was dedicated to providing enough fully functional fishing rods so the children could enjoy a morning of fishing.
