A community-supported non-profit fishing event for disabled veterans and their families on the Chesapeake Bay 

2020 cancelled
Crab feast

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. 


...we're now planning the 11th Annual - 19th August, 2023

About our event - 

We're is an invite-only event for disabled veterans from Project Healing Waters, and their families

Stars & Stripers is a non-profit community fishing event on Kent Island, Maryland. We host disabled veterans and active duty military in Project Healing Waters programs and their families.

In our 2019 event, over fifty veterans went fishing on the Chesapeake - for some, it was their first time fishing in saltwater. Our 11th Annual event will be August 19th, 2023

Stars & Stripers is non-profit, self-funded, entirely supported by volunteers and tax-free donations from our sponsors.  

We rely completely on outside donations to serve our veterans.

Our sponsors & donors include the many captains who volunteer to guide our veterans, Maryland & Delaware Hardee's Restaurants, the Kent Island Yacht Club, Centreville American Legion, the Elks, VFW, Ebb Tide Rentals, Fisherman's Crab Deck, and a host of local supporters.

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...
