Covid-19 Fishing Regulations in Maryland have been Updated  - 5/7/20

Governor Hogan in a press conference today eased the Covid-19 restriction on recreational fishing and boating with some social distancing precautions that will remain in place effective tomorrow May 7, 2020 at 7:00 am see below.

BROADENING OF PERMITTED OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: Governor Hogan has amended his Stay at Home order to broaden the list of permitted outdoor activities to now include individual and small group sports such as golfing, tennis, and similar activities; outdoor fitness instruction; recreational fishing and hunting; recreational boating; and horseback riding. Closed functions at state parks will be reopened, including all state beaches for walking and exercise, as well as playgrounds. Local governments will have the flexibility to take similar actions at their discretion. It will remain critical, however, that Marylanders continue to follow public health guidance and practice physical distancing. These changes take effect tomorrow, Thursday, May 7, at 7:00 a.m.
