One of the great fishing locations shared between Maryland and West Virginia
Well… this was a waste of my time… sort of.
Small brookie water near a well developed campground offers a long, easy walk but not much else.
Rough hiking from the top, skinny water
Not real attractive…
Easy access, also gives you a shot at walleye.
Stick to the area above Oakland
Tight, tough water.
Need to cool off?
Here’s an alternative to Deep Creek
It’s offlimits to vehicles… but very much “on limits” to anyone willing to walk.
A nice little trout stream
Wonderful scenery… sparse fish after the massive rains
Tough fishing brookie stream feeds into the Savage
Spectacular Fall weather sets up a great day.
A mix of wild and stocked.
Maryland has a Big Run feeding the Savage River Reservior
A high mountain destination – fish the lake or hunt for brookies in Poplar Lick, the lake’s tailwater stream.
Nice place in Garret County as an alternative to Deep Creek
Zero Creel Limit, cold brook trout water – an alternative to the Savage River
Muddy? No way!
Trout now, bass in the summer
The Savage FFO proved to be too dangerous for me to fish on a rainy day.
Tough fishing downstream of the first bridge outside of Bloomington. Leave this section to the experts
The Sang Run access point opens up a wide, beautiful stretch of the Yough
Not the most exciting place, but it will fill a need if you are frustrated by the smart fish in the special regulation section.
The Mid-Atlantic Budget Angler leads me to a nice brook trout stream
Not enough water to be worth it in the fall – come here in the spring when the water is higher.
Deeper pools in this section hold all the fish during the low water conditions of October 2008
So just where do they put the fish? Not a place to go in low water conditions.
Rocks that are snot slick; nasty, tough fishing; highly educated trout!
River looks pretty dull up here. We did not have time to hike very far south on the road to Kendall – it may pick up down there.
We were in the hunt for the elephants that were stocked here last month – 65 six pounders covertly inserted into the river at Swallow Falls
For those who are willing to hump it in, it looks like good pocket water about a mile south from the parking lot on an otherwise unproductive section of the river
Water was low the day we were there. This is a tough river to walk. Plenty of pools and good smallie action in spite of the water level
