MD DNR Removes 3-rod limit
Friday, January 24, 2014

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (MD DNR) Fisheries Service will proceed with an emergency regulation in February 2014 to remove the three fishing rod limit per person that was established for tidal waters nearly 7 months ago. This decision is based upon new information that suggests this regulation may have a negative socio-economic impact on tackle shops and sports fishermen, and because the primary objective of this regulation was to address a statewide inconsistency in rod limits rather than conservation.

A letter and full explanation of emergency regulation to remove limit is available on the Sport Fisheries Advisory Commission's January 28 meeting web page.
