Marylanders will have the chance to celebrate the restoration of the yellow perch fishery Saturday, March 5, during the second annual Yellow Perch Appreciation Day hosted by the Coastal Conservation Association Maryland (CCA MD) and its Upper Bay Chapter. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at North East Town Park, North East, MD.

The event will include a fishing tournament and hot food and drinks. The celebration is free, and there is no requirement for a fishing license although anglers must register with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources which can be done at http://dnr.maryland.gov.swregistry.asp Additionally, Nettie, the five-foot yellow perch, will be on hand to have photos taken with young anglers.

In the tournament anglers will be able to fish either from a boat or the pier in the park. Prizes will be awarded for the heaviest single fish with $250 going to the first place winner. Second place will receive $200, third place $150, fourth place $100, and fifth place $50. A CCA Calcutta will provide the chance to double winnings. Tournament entry fee is $5 or $15 for the whole family. For complete details and sign up information go to http://ccamd.org or stop by Herb's Tackle Shop.
