Camping and Fishing in Lothian
Location: Patuxent River and Mattawoman Creek
Last Friday fishermen - Philip Chua, Lee Chua, Brad Reger, Lexi Reger had a weekend of camping in Lothian MD and went fishing in the Patuxent River, then at General Smallwood State Park at the wooden fishing pier right off of 4 on the Patuxent. We were able to catch a few White Perch. My son Lee caught this nice Smallmouth Bass on a nightcrawler.
We decided to head to General Smallwood State Park on Mattawoman Creek to see if we could catch a Snakehead. We didn't have any luck but did see some big ones that were caught by park officials while electrofishing. We switched to nightcrawlers and caught a few Bullheads and 3 nice Channel Cats.
We had a great time. The DNR website makes buying a license online very easy! Hope to get back when the weather warms up for another crack at those Snakeheads and perhaps a go at the Blue Cats.
