Two Little Patuxent Rainbows
Location: Little Patuxent River
I stopped at the Little Patuxent River on my way home from work yesterday to see if I could catch a few trout that were stocked earlier that day. Because it was my first time fishing this area, I made sure to keep my expectations low. I was fishing with a spinning outfit rigged up with 6lb mono tied directly to a 6lb fluorocarbon leader about 4ft in length. I tied on a 1/8oz black roostertail with a silver blade and started walking the path upstream. I saw a bunch of fly fisherman and a few others using spinning gear. I landed 2 14" Rainbows within 5 minutes at the mouth of a small split in the river. I also managed to hook 3 others of similar size that all jumped off the hook of a weightless woolly bugger retrieved across the current cast only about 15ft out. I brought the 2 -14 inchers home for dinner and they were delicious! Thank you to DNR who work tirelessly to ensure our resources are safe, clean, and available.
