Fishing Report

October 06, 2006|By Staff Reports

Prettyboy Reservoir -- Joe Butta reports similar conditions, water 7 feet down, with largemouth and smallmouth bass still suspended over deep water structures. They're best caught when they leave the structures to feed, with crankbaits, plastics or jigs.

Liberty Resevoir -- Doug Geis at Old Reisterstown Bait and Tackle says anglers are catching smallmouth and largemouth bass, at weights as heavy as 6 pounds on live shiners and nightcrawlers. Catfish and white crappies are starting to pick up. He predicts cloud cover could help the number of catches.

Gunpowder River -- Thanks to the electroshocking, the water flow is at 170 cubic feet per inch, according to Backwater Angler's Theaux LeGardeur. Additionally, fewer people are fishing now, which might be better for anglers. More caddis are available, as well as big grasshoppers. Masemore through Bunker Hill is the prime territory.

Ocean City -- Sue Foster's online report for Oyster Bay Tackle mentions surf anglers finding great results on snapper blues, using rigs involving mullet. Offshore, it was possible for anglers to do well with sea bass.

Potomac River -- According to, anglers were able to find bass at Edwards Ferry, Whites Ferry and Lander, while stripers were more plentiful in the Washington area. Bass were also caught near the Pocomoke River, near Nassawango Creek and from Milbourn Landing to Shad Landing.
