Beginning during the 2013/2014 tournament, Angler's Log entries which include Blue Catfish, Northern Snakehead or Flathead Catfish, at any length in size, will be eligible for up to two prizes via a random drawing at the annual Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale. Fish must be kept and a photo showing the kept fish is mandatory. Multiple entries are allowed, but each fish can only be entered once.

Opening Day of Trout season

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Rocks State Park - Deer Creek

My son Jason and I went out for our annual opening day trip at Deer Creek (Rocks State Park). Needless to say it was the coldest opener that I recall in a good while! The fishing was very slow which was odd because we normally have a limit by 9. My son did manage to hook up with a rainbow trout which was the oddest one Iíve ever seen, it was a short but fat trout! We left a short time later so we could warm back up. We came back out later on Saturday and I managed to catch another nice one. We used Berkley Powerboats (white). We will be back out fishing this week!

Late Afternoon Trout Fishing

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Allen Pond Park

I had a little bit of time Sunday afternoon to go fishing, so I went to Allen Pond Park with a couple friends to fish for stocked trout. Once we found the spot they were hanging out at, we caught a limit of trout in 15-20 mins on rainbow colored powerbait. We also tried jigging for a few minutes for bass or crappie. We got a couple hits, but no hookups.??

Cold weekend of Troutfishing

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Riverfront Park, Savage Mill and Patterson Park Pond

My son Neil Villanueva and his good friend Brandon Collins, had a good weekend of catching trout even though it was cold enough for ice to form in the fishing rod guides! They caught their rainbows starting on Saturday morning at Riverfront Park in Laurel, then later at Savage Mill. When the temperature started to rebound, the trout were biting well at the Patterson Park Pond on Sunday afternoon. All in all it was a very successful weekend !

Opening Day

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Big Gunpowder

I fished along the Big Gunpowder this morning in the snow! The weather was cold and the fishing was hot. The Panther Martin worked great and then some corn and Power Bait. Most fishermen had some trout and were glad to be out. Thanks for another year of trout fishing fun!
