You are correct with the hopper/ant/beetle combo. The hoppers in small sizes like #14 or a #16. There has also been some midges coming off as well, the Savage River Outfitters were recommending having small ones #20 & #22 in an olive color. Pheasnat Tail and Gold-Ribbed Hare's Ear nymphs in #14 and smaller should work as well. They also said to try an Adams in a real small size, like a #20 or smaller.

Bad news. My mom never made reservations, so that trip is cancelled.
So instead, I'll be going to Rocky Gap lodge. Maybe there will be a good stream nearby.

Fishplease, to fish around western Maryland now you will need a guide (If you are from out of town). There are three major rivers that are tailwaters that can still be fished but to come in blind would be hard and be successful. Try calling either Savage River Outfitters at 301-359-8010 or the cell at 703-517-1040 or Spring Creek Outfitters at 301-387-6587. Either one should be able to help you. I don't know their rates but they have websites and can get additional information from there. Great fishing!

by the way, I stopped by the Savage on Tuesday(It's actually on my way home from work), my first time and yep, that water is freezing, but once you consider the source, I can understand why. I used a spinner and caught three Trout, one Raindbow and two Brown, very n ice place to fish!

You may want to stop by or call the Orvis FLy Shop along the river and ask them. I don't know!

they're a little confused, but they are out, I have heard them every night as I am leaving the water.

Now that duck season is over and only a few weeks left of goose season...how is the fishing on the Savage? I know the area is covered in ice/snow(I am not good at ice fishing!!)...but that makes it more interesting!!!
