Another MD Fly-guy here, usually in the salt around the Eastern Shore. I'm back and forth between the Upper Bay and the Tangier Sound, home and Salisbury University respectively.

Not too much going on in either at this time, though word on the stream is that the Salisbury streams will be stocked soon...

I would live to fish Western MD, but I am in Montgomery County and a drive to Garret county is not in the plans. Does anyone know of some viable (read the fishable) streams in Montgomery county? I want to wet a line withour draining my gas tank!

Things are finally starting to happen on the Gunpowder. Check out this local flyshop for reports, etc. I go there every time I am on my way to the river. They have a great selection of local flies and they always know what is working from day to day.

I love the gun powder, I seem to always catch fish there.

What seems to be working on the gun powder right now as we go from smmer to fall?

Anyone going for big boys with streamers? Any luck?

The heavy flows have subsided the rock snot a bit and it may be nymphable. Streamers or wets would be your best bet until the sulphers hatch. That's probably the first 'hatch".

Switchfisher is being modest. Check out his site as well. One of the more informative compilations of fishing information in the Mid-Atlantic area. The Coburn and Gelso book is great, the information at is a positive addition with some exhaustive work compiled over the past several years and truly a labor of love.

Thanks Steve!

I am not a fisherman myself, but own and operate a bed and breakfast right on the Casselman River (we have six and a half acres of riverfront on the property, publicly accessible) so I can testify to the great sport here from conversations with the many fisherman who come and stay with us each spring and fall. The Casselman is stocked by the DNR, the Savage has naturally reproducing trout, the Yoch is a mix of both. All the current record size species catches in the state have been landed in Garrett County - what more could you ask (and I didn't even mention Deep Creek Lake which is also very fishable). The Potomac Branch of Trout Unlimited can tell you all you need to know, and we have great guide services here - especially Allegheny Expeditions and Howard Harsch (Spring Creek Outfitter) - check them out on the web. The Wisp Resort at Deep Creek Lake has an authorised Orvis shop on site. Come up I68 and do some fishing- we will be stocking early next month!
I am a new member to this forum, as I recently got back into fly fishing after a few years(this time with heavier gear and targeting freshwater largemouth and smallmouth). I can attest to Stonebow's post. Garrett County is a great fishing environment. I went to school at Frostburg State and have been fishing all of the bodies of water he mentioned for about 12 years now. In fact, my buddies from college and I go back and fish the casselman and savage river every year around March/April. Best of luck to all. I'm always looking for new spots for my kayak and smallmouth flyfishing to any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Just wondering which flies have been the most effective for you in the gunpowder area during the fall months.
