Maryland has a rich fishing and crabbing heritage and offers everything from trophy trout in mountain streams to highly migratory gamefish cutting through the Gulf Stream. Freshwater and saltwater opportunities abound for everyone from families and their children's first catch to the expert looking to hook up with a fish-of-a-lifetime or that fish species which has eluded them for years. If you are new to Maryland or even an experienced angler, click on some of the links provided on this page to learn all about the different fishing experiences available throughout the State.

Anglers of all ages are encouraged to submit their stories and pictures about their experiences fishing in Maryland for inclusion in the department's Angler's Log and Youth Angler's Log. Check out some of the great photos we have received by visiting our Flickr Page.
