Important Note: If anyone in your picture is under 18 years of age, we must have a photo release signed by a parent/guardian before we can post your picture. By sending any photos or art to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources you are giving DNR permission to use the image(s) online and in print.

There will be a 2014 end-of-year random drawing from angler's participating in any of the Volunteer Angler Surveys. We encourage anglers to continue to report snakehead catches through the Inland Freshwater survey in addition to their Angler's Log submission. The information helps our biologists better understand the various species and water systems they utilize.

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. Remember, all invasive species must be dead to be entered and there is no catch and release category. Visit the Maryland fishing Challenge web site to read the complete set of rules.

Governor's Bridge Pond Trout Stocking

Type: Freshwater
Region: Southern
Location: Governor's Bridge Pond

MDNR biologists recently stocked 300 rainbow trout into Governor's Bridge Pond, a MD-NCPPC pond located in Bowie, MD. A utility vehicle and cattle tank was used because the trout truck can't easily access the pond.

A total of 600 trout were stocked this year, the first year that Governor's Bridge Pond has been a part of the put-and-take trout fishery. The pond feels somewhat remote, and offers a unique fishing opportunity in southern MD. So far there seem to be a few happy anglers, and we encourage others to take part. Keep in mind that there is a two fish limit per angler, so there are plenty of fish to go around.

Gwynn Falls Trout Putting Up a Fight

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Gwynns Falls

I fished the Gwynns Falls Monday and had a great time. Plenty of trout and very few fishermen. Saw a herd of deer cross where I was fishing. I also caught this 20 inch golden rainbow trout. He fought like crazy and I was as excited as if it were my first trout. Thanks for stocking such great fish! Tight lines.
