Maryland Muskie Program



The muskellunge, also known as “muskie” for short is one of the top trophy fish for many anglers.  These massive fresh water fish can live for over 20 years and grow to more than 50 inches long. It’s famous for not only being elusive but difficult to catch and many in the angling community regard this fresh water beast as “the fish of ten thousand casts.”

Muskies have become a naturalized sportfish in Maryland with the only population existing in the freshwater Potomac River. This is where you can find a team of biologists who are dedicated to managing this species and anglers that successfully keep the tradition of muskie fishing alive.
