UP COMING FISHING EVENT APRIL 1, 2017:
CWA FLL Shad Fishing Day on Deer Creek in the Susquehanna State Park.
Shad are called “the poor man’s tarpon” because of the way they leap and fight. If we are lucky this year, they will come into Deer Creek to spawn. If the shad are not running up Deer Creek, we will move to the Octoraro Creek or the Conowingo Dam Fishing Park to fish for small mouth bass on Susquehanna River below the Conowingo Dam. All skill levels are welcome. Wading is required. Maryland fresh water fishing license required required. There may also be an additional fee for parking at the State Park ($3).
Only Mother Nature knows for sure if the shad will be in attendance on April 1 but if you are interested in surveying the waters regardless
News Flash ! Please be sure to read the calendar of events listed on the CWA Calendar and plan ahead for a season of fun. Some events are limited to a certain number of participants and reservations are taken by the trip leader on a FIRST COME: FIRST SERVED basis based on when you RSVP. Many Destination trips are over night events and as such are limited to the number of beds reserved at the facility. Others may be trips to small, more sensitive stream environments and be limited to a smaller number of participants for the sake of the stream health. Others may be held on private lands and by an "Invitation Only" basis and require reservations. Regardless of venue we always strive for the best possible overall fishing experience, comradery and enjoyment of the beauty of nature. For all outings and events please RSVP to the leader so she can better plan for the event with you in mind. You must RSVP and send a deposit in when required to hold you place on most Destination overnight trips. Plan ahead, RSVP and dont be left out. We want you to have your best year on the water with us.

Chesapeake Women Anglers (CWA) is a women's fly fishing club with members residing in and around the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area including MD, VA, DC and beyond.
We share skills by teaching each other while on the water and in the classroom and by writing articles for our quarterly newsletter. We meet monthly to fish on local waters in the mid-Atlantic/Chesapeake Bay area and by way of our destination trips explore more distant waters together (see CWA Calendar). We partner with environmental groups to improve our waters, take part in community events, and socialize at our annual spring kick-off meeting, fall picnic, and winter holiday party. Mostly we just love to fly fish and enjoy sharing all about it.
Become a member so you too can learn about the great places we fish, share the camaraderie and create your own stories. Membership is open to adult persons age 18 and over (see Membership). We hope to see you on the water!
