Angler Clean Water Story: Healthy Estuaries, Healthy Fish

Eric fly fishing in mattawoman, roggeStriped bass, speckled trout, red drum, and many other species of interest to anglers, as well as the species that they prey upon, are dependent upon the estuaries and upon submerged aquatic vegetation (SAVs) at some point or points in their lives.

Healthy estuaries and a healthy overall Chesapeake Bay are vital to healthy fish populations, and we all need to be concerned about anything that would compromise that health, and be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
