Trout Fishing in Garrett County
Location: Garrett County
I went out last weekend to do some fishing in Garrett County. The rivers were up from snowmelt and releases from the dams, but I did push forward despite that. The Yough was running pretty good, but I found some nice fish at Friendsville Park. They were taking nymphs in the cold fast water – near the shore. Later, I went to Casselman on Saturday as levels dropped. Stoneflies were hatching but the fish weren’t biting for me on them. I switch to a small streamer/clouser in white and began picking up fish consistently. Swinging the fly across the current and slow stripping it back up. Fish were more concentrated in the channels near shore and along the ledges.
I'm looking forward to more cold weather fishing!
