The largest freshwater lake in Maryland, this is a popular spot that offers 3,800 acres of playground for fishing. Many varieties of fish can be found here, ranging from small mouth and large mouth bass, crappie, rainbow trout, and much more. A great fishing focused vacation can be had here. It’s especially good for ice fishing come winter so if that’s your interest, head on here to find mostly yellow perch under the ice. Don’t forget your ice-axe and rod!
This massive 2,800 acre reservoir at the border of Maryland and Pennsylvania is a top fishing spot. It is home to a variety of fish habitat with walleye and small mouth bass being the major game fish. The water levels can fluctuate here so make sure to check before you plan a visit.
This river/reservoir located in western Maryland has ample fishing opportunities. There is plenty of wild Brook and Brown Trout that can be caught here, and the reservoir is a great spot for fly fishing enthusiasts.
Of course, no Maryland fishing list can be complete without having the Chesapeake Bay on the list. Saltwater fishing here gets you rockfish, flounder, croaker, and bluefish. It’s a popular vacation spot, and a day trip on one of the charter fishing boats is a fantastic fishing experience.
