Trout – Jones Falls Trout Fishing (MD)

Approximate Boundary: 39.375138,-76.65054 to 39.378236,-76.643986 (2,129 feet)

Up until recently, there used to be roadside parking on the long road leading into the 415-acre Lake Roland Park at the southern boundary of Lake Roland. As a result of new construction, large 6×6 wooden posts block every available turnoff except for the one close to the entrance. The only remaining parking is at the northern end of Lakeside Drive.

The entry road winds through tall trees that shade both the road and the rocky stream to the north. Lake Roland feeds a constant flow of water into the stream to keep it 20 to 30 feet wide. At normal flows, the stream is shallow, requiring anglers to search a bit for the best trout-holding locations behind rocks, in deep channels, or in scattered pools.

Dense vegetation packs both banks, so plan on wading. Interestingly enough, just upstream from the junction of Jones Falls with Lake Roland, the water is cold enough to support a reproducing population of trout. To fish there, park at the Falls Road turnout and walk east to intersect the stream. Fish downstream to remain in the park.

Directions: From I-83, take exit 10 for Northern Parkway E. Turn left on MD 25/Falls Road. Turn right onto Lakeside Drive.

Access Point:

Secrets Revealed? No. This is a very public location that is documented in the stocking plan.
