Trout – Avalon Pond Trout Fishing (MD)

One of the attractions of Avalon Pond is the easy access for disabled anglers facilitated by four fishing piers that overhang the water. The improved walking path connecting them makes movement effortless, even for those confined to wheelchairs.

Beyond that, the DNR dumps 480 fish into this very small pond.  That makes for a perfect place to take a new, budding angler since the probability of catching a fish is high.

Thick vegetation packs the shoreline, especially at the western end. Other than the piers, there are only a few places where anglers have beaten back the shoreline vegetation to create paths to the water’s edge. The bottom of the lake falls off quickly from the shoreline and there is no clogging growth of underwater vegetation during the trout season. In short, when combined with the adjacent picnic areas, this is a good place to bring a child.

This is a special regulation area – only youth, seniors or blind folks can fish here.
