Marshyhope Snakehead

Type: Tidal
Region: Eastern
Location: Marshyhope

I was bass fishing last night on Marshyhope and caught this snakehead close to route 392 (Harrison Ferry Rd) bridge. I did not measure the fish. I filleted the fish and still have remains in freezer till Monday when the trash comes.

Thought you would like to know in case you have not had reports yet for Marshyhope. This is first one I have heard of.

DNR Response: Thanks for reporting that catch of the snakehead to us! It is the first confirmed snakehead that has been reported on the Marshyhope this year. There have been a few catches in the past 3 4 years, but not many. Your removal of that fish will help improve the odds that snakehead will not become established in the Marshyhope in the future. Thanks again and I hope you enjoy the meal!
