Central MD Fishing Report

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Liberty Reservoir and Triadelphia Reservoir

I went out today to see if I could get my first fish of the season. Alas it was not to be. Water was still quite cold on Liberty Lake, especially muddy and filled with silt from all the melt and runoff from the rain on Little Morgan Run, right around the Rt. 32 bridge. Clarity was barely 2 or 3 inches. From the shore along the fire access road threw a variety of lures, baits of various colors from the shore to structure but nothing was interested. I relocated after an hour of no action further north to the Deer Park Rd bridge. Water there was much clearer, visibility a few feet but action still nonexistent for myself and several other anglers who were throwing jigs, crawlers and live lining minnows and baitfish all in and around the bridge structure from both sides of the lake and shore, but no action after 2 hours. So I drove south across I-70 to Triadelphia Reservior which was almost mud brown from all the silt, visibility also only an inch or two as far as the eye could see. Water levels were fairly high, cresting the rock wall lining the launch on Triadelphia Lake Rd. I fished from the pier there, threw both crawlers on the bottom and suspended about 3 feet below bobbers as well as a variety of spoons, spinners and other lures, but no takers. Hoping to try again in a week or two weeks when the water has had a chance to warm up a bit further and clear out.
