Snakeheads Still Being Caught

Type: Tidal
Region: Southern
Location: Mattawoman Creek

I just wanted to send in a report to let anglers know that snakeheads can still be caught this time of year. On Tuesday, biologists with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service went electrofishing out of Indian Head, MD on Mattawoman Creek. We caught 20 northern snakeheads. They were caught in areas where underwater grasses and/or lily pads were dying off. They were typically in 2-3 feet of water, with a few others in slightly deeper (5-6 ft.) water. If anglers wish to see pictures and reports of some of our electrofishing trips they can check our office Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/MDFisheryResourcesOffice
