STARS & STRIPERS
A community-supported non-profit fishing event for disabled veterans and their families on the Chesapeake Bay
We're going fishing again in 2023 !
COVID got in the way of our Stars & Stripers Fly Fishing events for a couple years.
Our first responsibility is a safe, fun day on the Bay for Project Healing Waters anglers.
But COVID kept us from gathering dozens of veterans and volunteers safely.
We're happy to say Stars & Stripers will return on Saturday, August 19th, 2023.
We will be back on the water at the Kent Island Yacht Club.
OUR 10TH ANNUAL STARS & STRIPERS WAS A GREAT DAY!
...we're now planning the 11th Annual - 19th August, 2023

Where are we fishing?
We fish on the Chesapeake Bay for striped bass (or Rockfish to the Marylanders), bluefish, spanish mackerel, white perch and even the occasional sea trout
The action is non-stop when 'schoolies' are breaking the surface...
We are supported by dozens of professional guides and local fishermen who donate their time and expertise to help our cause. Contact us directly if you'd like to fish with one of our friends
