Tumbling 556 feet across its 2.4 mile course inside theSavage River State Forest, the creek does not pause to create many fishable pools. Look for the start of the State property on Elk Lick Road and pull off at the campsite located just northwest of the Park border.
From there, walk over to the stream and slide down the ten foot tall bank to reach the water’s edge. It is not wide and the terrain only allocates five to ten feet to hold the streambed. The hillside is steep; prepare to sweat to find a fishable pool.
Directions: From Westernport, take MD 135 west towards Bloomington. Turn right onto Savage River Road.
Access Point: Elk Lick Campsite (39.60175,-79.08742)
