All Dad wants for Father’s Day is to relax and fish with the family — and Mom is welcome too! Treat Dad to a fun-filled weekend with BBQ and catch-and-release fishing. Compete in our Fish-a-Rama contest, fishing for catfish, bass, and blue gill in our stocked ponds. Prizes are on the line for the largest fish hooked and the most fish caught during the power hour. Bring your own pole and gear to fish (no drag hooks), and we will have worms for sale in our Farm Market.
We are thrilled to welcome Bryan Kelly, a 1994 BASS Master Qualifier and long-time Potomac River fishing guide for a spin-tackle demonstration and a fly-casting clinic at this year’s event. Bryan is the CEO and Head Guide of the Anglers Inn in Harpers Ferry, and he has been featured on The Outdoor Channel on Curtis Flemings Fly Rod Chronicles. Come spend some time with this accomplished author, artist, and designer of flies for small mouth bass, and up your fishing game.
The Roosteraunt Bakery will feature pizza flatbreads, kettle corn, and our infamous cider donuts.
After a morning of Fishing fun head up to Bluemont Vineyard where they are hosting the Brewers from Dirt Farm Brewing for a “BREWmont” celebration of Dad.
