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. You are also giving DNR permission to distribute the photo for non-commercial purposes to other media, print, digital and television for their use.

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.
A new component of the Maryland Fishing Challenge includes invasive species reports submitted to the Angler's Log. 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.

Fishing at Loch Raven
Location: Loch Raven Reservoir
I went fishing today with a friend. Only caught one small fish. It was a great late afternoon day at Loch Raven Reservoir. We had a blast walking through the woods along the trails exploring. You can see by the photo the beautiful sun setting along the shore.

I caught these rainbow trout last week, in the Upper Gunpowder River.They eagerly hit the spinner lure I was casting and drifting through the current. Thanks to the DNR for the fall trout stocking in one of my favorite spots!

Location: Middle Patuxent and Patuxent
Until recently , I've never seen yellow perch on the Middle Patuxent and Patuxent. These are the sections where they are small creeks. The fish appeared to be extremely healthy with beautiful vibrant color and there was certainly no shortage of them as I caught nearly 15-20 of them. A lot of the YP were in the 6-8 " range . No keepers (not that I would anyway) , but an encouraging and suprsing find. This is in the Howard/Montgomery area.
