Fishing Fun Contest
The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park will co-host a youth fishing event at the Cushwa Basin, Williamsport, MD. The Cushwa Basin will be stocked with native fish, blue gill, through Maryland Department Natural of Resources for the Fishing Fun Contest co-sponsored by the park and Williamsport Rotary. The event will be held on June 2 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. After the event, the basin will be opened up to the community for fishing.
