Friend's Creek Brown Trout
Location: Owen's Creek and Friend's Creek
Had another great day at Friend's Creek in Maryland fishing for trout. I started out the day at Owen's Creek only to find it high and muddy. Thought it would be clear by now. Had a few strikes from fish but gave up after awhile and headed up to Friend's Creek. The fishing there was better since the creek was not as high with clearer water. I hooked up with two rainbows and then fishing was slow. Had my lunch and went downstream. Hooked up with a nice Rainbow Trout and then headed down to the swimming hole on the hopes that it was stocked with some nice Brown Trout. Caught two more Brown Trout making my limit. After that I fished for fun hooking some nice 13" trout then a nice 17" Brown Trout. All of these fish fought hard and were hooked on a streamer pattern then released. The swimming hole lived up to its reputation. After talking to several other anglers I found out that a nice Rainbow Trout was caught there the week before. Looking forward to rest of the season and great fishing. Tight lines.
