Become a CCA Member

CCA Maryland was formed in 1995 by 100 avid recreational anglers who were concerned about the lack of a strong conservation voice in striped bass fishery management policy. Since then, we have achieved significant improvement in fisheries management policy, natural resource law enforcement, aquatic habitat restoration and enhancement, and natural resource  conservation.  CCA Maryland is supported by nearly 2000 members who are conservation-minded anglers of all kinds. If you troll, live-line, jig, crab, fly-fish, and guide professionally, CCA Maryland is for you.

By joining CCA you will become a part of the largest organization of it’s kind in the Country.  We have over 120k members through 19 member states.
