Eric Hayden of Bowie writes: This has felt like the longest winter on record because my cabin fever is raging. I know I must have missed it earlier, but could you please remind me about the new rules regarding catch-and-release striped bass fishing this spring? Outdoors Girl replies: When it comes to cabin fever, join the club. The winter of 2009-2010 is now in the books, at least as far as the equinox is concerned. Let's hope the weather gods can read the calendar. The new catch-and-release rules for the Chesapeake Bay go into effect Monday and continue until April 17, when the spring trophy season starts.

The Department of Natural Resources' recent adoption of catch-and-release for rockfish in tidal waters of the state officially opens the way for sportsmen to enjoy and protect one of our most exciting fish.And while catch-and-release for stripers is prohibited in spawning rivers from March 1 through June 30 and below the Conowingo Dam from June 15 through Sept. 15, overall the opportunity is sizable.There is a catch, however. If DNR determines that catch-and-release is damaging to the rockfish population, the practice will be altered or eliminated.

Saturday marks the beginning of this year's spring striped bass trophy season. From then to May 31, bay anglers will be allowed to keep one 36-inch or larger rockfish.Unfortunately, a thousand fish under 36 inches probably will be caught for every one over the 3-foot minimum.A few years back, after a column reporting on a great fall rockfishing trip with captain Alan Faulkner, a reader took me to task for writing that we caught and released 28 stripers."It doesn't do much good," the reader wrote, "to put legal fish through the stress [of catching them]

Catch and Release is the term for catching a fish and throwing it back. In her directorial debut, Erin Brockovich screenwriter Susannah Grant uses it as a metaphor for the way her romantic heroine (Jennifer Garner) and a small circle of friends face their feelings and let go of the dead-end ones. But the movie is less about catch and release than about giving in to confusion, moaning and collapse, with brief interludes of idyllic play and even briefer ecstasy. It's not a comedy-drama, really.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has announced it is no longer illegal to catch and release rockfish (striped bass) in Maryland's portion of Chesapeake Bay.DNR Secretary Dr. Torrey C. Brown said, "The DNR recognizes that catch and release is an important part of recreational fishing. Our research has shown that catch and release can be done without damaging the striped bass population."Brown said the change in policy was motivated by the recovery of Atlantic Coast striper populations and recent studies conducted by DNR.Although new regulations permitting this activity have not been released, DNR's Chief of Fisheries W. Peter Jensen said, "We've been looking at catch and release for quite a while, but we wanted to thoroughly examine the effects before relaxing existing regulations."

Hoping to protect spawning striped bass from early season fishing, state fisheries officials are proposing a regulation for the Chesapeake Bay that limits the type of hooks that can be used and the number of rods on trolling boats. The regulation would cover catch-and-release fishing from March 1 to the third Saturday in April, when the spring season begins. However, the proposal stops short of limiting trolling each week to four days, an option considered by the Fisheries Service and endorsed by the Sport Fish Advisory Commission.

Students at St. Andrew's United Methodist Day School in Edgewater are taking on a new environmental issue in their quest to receive a "Green School" designation from the Maryland Department of Education. This year, they began to sell reusable grocery bags to discourage shoppers from using plastic ones. Environmentalists say plastic bags cause more pollution when they wind up in landfills and are washed into the Chesapeake Bay. Next week, the Annapolis city council is expected to decide whether to ban retailers from using plastic bags.

Big Barry and Little Steve have suddenly made Anne Arundel County's school headquarters in Annapolis a lot more fun. Visitors to the administrative building gravitate to the aquarium to watch the two small terrapins glide through the water and chow down on clams. Children start one-sided conversations with the terrapins. The turtles have gotten so used to the human attention since arriving in August that they swim toward the tapping fingers on the glass.

Big crowds, big fish. The 1992 trophy rockfish season got off to a rousing start last Friday.I was surprised at the number of anglers fishing on May 1. It was the largest crowd for an opening day that I can remember.Not everyone caught keeper rockfish, but enough were caught over the weekend to make fishing interesting. And, an unofficial record was set for largest rockfish caught.The beginning of the trophy rockfish season has always held a fascination for me, kind of like the opening day of deer season in Pennsylvania.

The locations Morgan Run: It's CDC sulfurs, emergers and ants; spinners in the evening, says Angler's Hollow owner Robert Sollott. Fish range from 10-12 inches, with the occasional 15-inch brown trout. If you find yourself fishing as the sun goes down and you don't have any spinners, Sollott suggests clipping the hackle from the top and bottom of a dry sulfur dun and pulling the remaining hackle to the sides to duplicate spent wings lying flat on the water's surface. In faster water, try muddler minnows with a little bit of weight.
