A bass fishery without equal

Thanks for your excellent reporting on the Charles County growth situation ("State, Charles County at odds over growth plan," Oct. 28).

I am conservation director for the Southern Region of the Maryland Bass Nation, a bass fishing organization.

The area in and around Mattawoman Creek is one the country's best bass fisheries. Many national and regional bass fishing tournaments are held there, bringing many people to the area who provide revenues to local businesses such as motels and restaurants. Some major tournaments were televised by ESPN.

The Maryland Bass Nation has filed formal documents with the county pointing out that major growth would ruin the fishery and severely impact the economy. I look forward to future articles on the subject.
