A small diversion from Fishing Creek next door.
Zero Creel Limit, cold brook trout water – an alternative to the Savage River
Muddy? No way!
This section is reserved for youth, seniors and the blind.
One of the most heavily stocked streams in Maryland

Small and boring. Get there before it becomes overgrown.
Trout now, bass in the summer
Theoretically, this is 15 miles of stocked water. The truth is different.
Good enough for a quick visit… not much else.
A nice spot for kids.
A nice lake on the western edge of I-270

Tough pond to fish
Scenic, wandering stream in central Maryland
A small pond guards the path to a fantastic fossil hunting location
Wheatley Lake has it all
Remote and distant, hugging the PA border, Friends Creek is superb.
If there were ever a more pathetic, small pond, I have not seen it. The Hughesville Pond is 250 feet long and approximately 75 feet across at its widest point. It is not much to look at. The vista gazing south from the parking lot is one of a small, almost stagnant pond lying in …
The South Branch offers good fishing for stockers with smallies mixed in.
The Fly Fishing only section is a pleasant stream for a calm day of fishing
Sweet! Fly fishing only and float stocked by the Potomac-Patuxent Chapter of TU
Town Creek is a low pressure, good section of trout water.
The Middle Patuxent meanders for two miles through Gorman Park

Here is the overview of Morgan Run I wrote for the NVTU
A good family picnic/fishing spot
The Montgomery County Park system undertook major renovations in 2011 that included dredging the lake to increase the depth and improve boating, fishing and water quality. The concession area rents boats and the park system allows anglers to launch private boats from the concrete ramp with a permit. Electric motors only. The hilly, 1,800 acre Rock …
I should have learned my lesson the first time
This spot has promise
Boring water upstream from the Marriottsville parking lot
The great thing about fishing Piney Run is that you actually have three choices. You can fish the long stocked stretch of Piney that parallels Marriottsville Road Number 2 or, take a hop skip and a jump down the road and fish up or downstream on the Patapsco from the large parking area at the …
The Savage FFO proved to be too dangerous for me to fish on a rainy day.
The pricker bushes are as thick as ever and attempt to shield the trout from pressure… unsuccesfully
The Gunpowder whips me again
Route 28 gives you good access to Great Seneca Creek allowing you to go up or downstream.
You can do a bike shuttle between Glencoe and Sparks
Deer Creek looks like a nice place to teach somebody how to fly fish
A sparkling fall day on the Gun mitigates getting skunked
A post to remind everyone… Bass season is not that far away!
After wasting the morning upstream of Ellicott City, I find this jewel.
I start my after work fishing program on the Patuxent at Rt 97.
The warm weather brought me and the stoneflies out together.
The lower section of Antietam Creek (below the park) is pretty nice
Not much of a visit as I only had an hour after work. I was not impressed, so maybe that was plenty of time.
The river is pretty nice here – broad, good water.
The lower section of Beaver Creek offers easy access along Roxbury Road
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
Morgan Run has a flat gentle gradient downstream from the Klee Run access point
This has to be the most heavily stocked section of water in Maryland.
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.
Not the best place, but it is a place for trout in the middle of summer
There have to be smallies here… but I did not find many
The Gunpowder is still running crisp and cold this late in the summer
After stocking, the Patapsco in the upper Avalon section is pretty good
The middle of the upper section of the Beaver Creek fly fishing only section has potential
They stock at the Riffle Ford Road access point, but I came up dry when I fished it in March.
The Patapsco at the Daniels Dam is a nice walk, a decent looking river, but be prepared for company.
Rocks that are snot slick; nasty, tough fishing; highly educated trout!
Not a bad spot. Much better than the upper section of 15 Mile Creek
Good enough for a fishing break after work only after stocking. Don’t bother unless it has been stocked.
Not a bad spot. Wide, smooth, good water to hold the stockers.
Another nice section – but wait for it to be stocked before you go
The Little Patuxent offers a taste of Western Maryland in the WMA area.
A good place to go right after stocking.
This was already dead water when I visited it in mid-March
Absolutely pathetic. I cannot believe fish are stocked here.
This is best visited after a stocking
Avalon offers up both smallies and trout
The fly fishing only section of the Patuxent below Brighton Dam offers a nice section of water to hit after stocking.
What a disappointment. While the trees provided some nice shade, there just was not much in terms of nice water in this section.
People rave about Owens. I didn’t get it then…. but maybe I do now.
Big Falls is a great section of the Gun sporting plenty of superb looking water
It felt really odd to fish Beaver Creek – you are surrounded by homes.
Not much action in the catch and release section of the Patapsco in the middle of winter
By late December, the upper section of Big Hunting Creek is looking pretty slim
Very pleasant, easy access, good pockets

A pretty stream, catch and release.
