When Will The Grasses Die Down?
Location: Mallows Bay
Me and my buddy John launched our kayaks at Mallows Bay 24th of August. I caught 3 snakeheads, biggest one was 2.5 lbs. I have a question: when will the grass die down?
DNR Response:Hey Fred, Thanks for the anglerís log post! The grasses will probably start dying out in October or early November. The rate and magnitude could differ depending on where youíre at and how quick the water gets cold. Here is a write-up I sent out to anglers via our constant contact program. Itís just got some hints on < a href="http://www.dnr.state.md.us/fisheries/bass/docs/Write-up_Best_Fall_Fishing.pdf">bass fishing from fall 2011. In it, thereís a figure with some information on what folks saw with grasses last year. Good luck out there!
