Embraced by miles of scenic Chesapeake Bay waterways, our County offers a great variety of saltwater and freshwater fishing experiences. Anglers can hook striped bass, largemouth bass, sea trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, black drum, Atlantic croaker, white perch, yellow perch, crappie, pickerel channel catfish, bluegill and more.
If fishing isn't your sport take a leisurely kayak ride along one of the many creeks or rivers that flow into the bay. Visit our business directory to locate local marinas, rental facilities, fishing charters and more.
Permits to use Queen Anne's County's landings and ramps are actually permits to park at all landing facilities throughout Queen Anne's County. As of June 1, 2009 this permit is now valid for launching boats at Matapeake Pier or a kayak or canoe at Romancoke Pier.
To use any of the public landings, a current permit must be displayed by each vehicle, with or without a trailer, for either the launching of a boat or for general parking. Annual permits are valid only when displayed on the driver's side of either the boat trailer tongue or the vehicle rear bumper. Daily permits are valid only when displayed on the windshield facing out. Ramp permits can be obtained at the Parks and Recreation office or Chesapeake Outdoors.
Launching at landings without a ramp is limited to canoes, kayaks and car-top boats.
