There will be a 2014 end-of-year random drawing from angler's participating in any of the Volunteer Angler Surveys.

The information helps our biologists better understand the various species and water systems they utilize.

Maryland Fishing Challenge Logo showing striped bassA new component of the Maryland Fishing Challenge includes invasive species reports submitted to the Angler's Log. Beginning during the 2013/2014 tournament, Angler's Log entries which include Blue Catfish, Northern Snakehead or Flathead Catfish, at any length in size, will be eligible for up to two prizes via a random drawing at the annual Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale. Fish must be kept and a photo showing the kept fish is mandatory. Multiple entries are allowed, but each fish can only be entered once. Remember, all invasive species must be dead to be entered and there is no catch and release category. Visit the Maryland fishing Challenge web site to read the complete set of rules.

Youghiogheny Catch and Release Trout Fishing Area

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Youghiogheny River

The Youghiogheny River Catch and Release Trout Fishing Area was recently surveyed with the help of the Garrett College's Fisheries Management Class. The upper station near Hoyes contained the highest density of trout, and some very nice trophy sized brown trout and rainbow trout. Even one brook trout was collected at this station. The lower Sang Run station had fewer trout, however we did collect some nice size rainbow trout and brown trout between twelve and fifteen inches.

Pictured is a 24.5 inch trout brown trout and a 16 inch rainbow trout from the Youghiogheny River C&R Trout Fishing Area.

Fish on Base

Type: Freshwater
Region: Southern
Location: Andrews AFB

I got on the water just after the rain stopped around 1:30pm. It was very overcast. The fish were a bit sluggish but I managed to catch a half dozen pickerel and 1 nice largemouth. The bass fell for a jointed rapala. Stickbaits and spinners caught the other fish.

I fished the pond on Andrews AFB. It's loaded with weeds which makes just about every cast end up with some vegetation. The pickerel are lying right up to the weedline. Cast enough times and you can fool a few fish.

Flats Fishing

Type: Tidal
Region: Northern
Location: Susquehanna Flats

Went out to this little spot on the flats and ended up with three nice size channel cats, I caught using white perch as cut bait. Also the smaller sized rockfish were feeding heavy on giant schools of bait fish that were moving through. I also saw a big bright orange koi or type of gold fish that someone must of released. It's was crazy to see that type of fish swimming up next to you in the sesquhanna river!
