Default whirling desiese and felt soled boots.

Maryland's Inland Fisheries Home Page

found this tidbit while serching around the dnr site looking for the trout stocking news. apparently felt soled boots are a no-no. good thing mine were only 40 bucks and i fish the same river in them.

I was going to say that it isn't all that widespread yet, but looks like that was outdated info:

The info is not dated; the research is cited Gates (2007). This is a new problem for Maryland. The news broke this season, and the contamination of the North Branch of the Potomac is due to poor hatchery management. The North Branch is one of our finest rivers, which many record fish have been taken. Nearby the rest of our trophy waters (Savage, Cassleman, etc) so far haven't been contaminated, but for how much longer?

Jeebus guys, what I meant was my impression that WD wasn't all that widespread yet was based on outdated info. What I posted reflects the current situation.

Oh and lugged boots are great, until you float your hat and put all the critters from inside your mouth and nose into the river and vice versa. (teehee)

On a serious note, I think the new boots out that are a combo of super sticky rubber and studs are likely a good way to go.

I was lucky enough to get my license before the price doubled.(Which is a real kick in the behind)
I don't have to worry about spreading whirling disease, as I don't use waders.
