Trout Stocking Update
Location: Friends and Owens Creeks in northern Frederick County
Although the spring trout stocking season is winding down, there are still great opportunities to catch trout. Friends and Owens Creeks in northern Frederick County were stocked last week with a combination of rainbow and brown trout. Brown trout can be more difficult to catch, which means better fishing longer into the summer for persistent anglers. Fly fishermen frequently have the upper hand as flows diminish and a variety of aquatic and terrestrial insects become available. Spin fishermen can still get in on the action using small spinners and jigs using a stealthy approach. Early and late in the day are probably best, but donít overlook higher flows after a rain as fishing can be exceptional then. May is a great month to try your luck at one of Marylandís many trout streams.
