Free Fishing Day
From: Letter to Rappahannock News, George Gardner 6/8/23
"Thanks to the help from many community supporters. Free Fishing returned to Rappahannock County Park on Saturday, June 3--a perfect weather day. The Rush River was stocked with 250 10-12 inch trout on Thursday evening. A steady stream of fisherpeople of all ages turned out throughout the day on Saturday in hopes of catching a few fish. Many were successful!
Special thank you to:

Roger and Janie Jenkins for all the free food and beverages they provided along with grilling services
Sean Michael Knick, who made connections with the local fishing community and offered fly-tying demonstrations
Roger Flinchum, who conducted fly-fishing casting coachjing throughout the day
Tim Bostic, Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR) conservation officer
John Odenkirk, DWR biologist, who provided loaner rods/reels and tackle
