Re: Fly fishing spots near Washington, DC
Try these spots around the D.C. area to fly fish -- for trout, that is.
Patapsco State Park -- Avalon area -- at Ellicott City, Md.
Big Hunting Creek: Catoctin State park, thurmont, Md.
Owens Creek: Thurmont, Md -- Spring only, after stocking
Great Seneca Creek: Montgomery County -- put in at Rifflesford Rd. and Black Rock Road. -- looks fantastic, just not much fish -- good for practice
Gun Powder Falls -- above and near Baltimore -- fantastic fishing
Shenandoah national park, Va.
a. Hughes River
b. Rose River
c. Rapidan River (good enough for Pres. Hoover, its good enough for us)
d. Moorman's River -- near Charlottesville, Va. worth the drive
e. Piney River -- good for beautful brookies
f. Jeremy's Run -- great for Brookies -- bears too!
Google any of these to get directions, water flows, ect. Have fun see you out there!!!
