Attention All Young Anglers (and Families)!

The 2016 Family and Youth Casting Call will be held at Fletcher's Cove on Saturday, May 14th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. rain or shine. This annual event features educational aquatic and environmental displays as well as the opportunity for young anglers to fish the stocked C&O Canal. Rods, bait and help with the process is provided free of charge. For more information contact Teresa Rodriguez at doee.arec@dc.gov. You may also call Fletcher's at 202-244-0461.


Fletcher’s Cove is a major outlet for the District of Columbia fishing permit.

We sell A LOT of them. When a youngster comes up, we ask “Are you over 16?”… that’s easy: if yes, they need one; if no, they don’t.

Fletcher's Cove is Open

Our fleet of 28 classic wooden bay skiffs will be available for fishing rentals as long as Mother Nature and the old Pot-o-mac cooperate; D.C fishing permits and our supply of basic angling supplies will be in stock. Please remember that fishing and river conditions at our location are fickle and change on a daily basis, particularly very early in the season. Poor fishing or bad conditions one day can easily morph into angling nirvana the next -- unpredictability is part of the fishing experience. Kayak and canoe rentals are scheduled to begin on April 30th.

especially ones with kids. One of the summer's beauties came from regular angler Matt Murtha, who sent three photos of stripers, walleyes and catfish. Here is what Matt had to say…
