NBPR C&R Trout Fishing Area Survey

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: North Branch Potomac River C&R Trout Fishing Area

The upper North Branch Potomac River Catch and Return Trout Fishing Area Survey:

The upper North Branch Potomac River C&R Trout Fishing Area (just downstream of the Jennings Randolph Lake) was recently surveyed to monitor the status of the trout population. We did document a relatively low density of Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout, however there were some trophy-sized wild trout in the population. Wild Rainbow Trout up to 20 inches and Brown Trout measuring 13 inches were collected. A fall stocking of Rainbow Trout will take place this month to improve fishing in this section of the river. Also the Put and Take Trout Fishing Areas at Barnum and Westernport will receive a total of 1,600 Rainbow Trout in October. The Garrett College Fisheries Management Class provided the necessary manpower to conduct the survey.
