First Fish While Ice Fishing

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Piney Reservoir, Frostburg

With some good advice from DNR's Matt Sell and some helpful assistance from a couple other friendly fisherman, I caught my first fish through the ice while fishing at Piney Reservoir on 1-11-15. I hope to get out on the ice more and hope to see the folks that have helped me to get started ice fishing.

Savage River Reservoir Trout

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Savage River Dam

We figured out the fall pattern for catching rainbow trout. Dad and I fished the Savage River Reservoir from our Canoe on Saturday 9-6-14 and caught our limit of trout. I caught this nice 18" trout. We saw an American Bald Eagle flying in to land and I grabbed the camera and got these pictures of it, he is in the center of the one picture sitting on a tree branch. The next day we headed to the fishing challange finale where I won a fishing rod, a tackle box, and best of all a fishing trip on the Baltimore Harbor. Thanks to the DNR for having the fishing challenge and a great big thanks to captain Tom Hughes for donating the fishing trips and to Matt from the Fisheries Service who presented the youth awards. I am very excited about the fishing trip with Captain Tom and can hardly wait until next year to go on it. Matt, we are looking forward to learning ice fishing this year and hope to see you out there.

Drift Fishing on the Potomac

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Potomac River, From Hancock to McCoys Ferry

Me and Dad and a bunch of our friends went to the Potomac River to drift fish on our canoes and kayaks on Saturday. We started at Hancock and ended at McCoys Ferry. We caught a lot of Smallmouth Bass, some catfish and sunfish. One of our friends was hooked up on a Musky that looked to be around 3 foot long but it got off. The bass were all under 14 inches. I didnít get any pictures of the fish but I did take this picture of the cut at Sidling Hill that can be seen from a stretch of the river. I thought this view of the cut from the river was neat, it was actually a lot further away then it appeared.
