Gunpowder River Maryland DNR Electrofishing Survey

No fish in the Gunpowder?
Believe Hon!
Join Maryland Fisheries Biologists in a rollicking sampling tour of the Gunpowder river.

The following schedule will be kept firm. The only exceptions will be if electrofishing conditions are unacceptable (ie. Flooding, muddy water, or torrential rain). Volunteers should check with me ( at work (410) 442-2080 or on my cell phone (410) 570-5718, a day or two prior to the work date to confirm that the survey date will go as planned. All meeting times will be at 9:30 a.m. at the planned meeting location. Bring chest high waders if you plan to assist us in the stream. Those not able to assist with the electrofishing are very welcome to attend and observe from the bank. Sampling usually extends to about 3:00 p.m. each day. Please call or email to confirm the dates that you plan to attend, only if you will assist in the electrofishing activity. Confirmations will allow us to ensure enough help will be available each sample date.
