Fishing report

October 13, 2006

Piney Run -- According to Jim Gronaw, chicken livers were able to catch rockfish, catfish and channel cats, while night crawlers were successful with white perch.

Liberty Reservoir -- Anglers are lining up near the Nicodemus Bridge for the purpose of picking up white perch, crappie, blue gill and large and smallmouth bass, all on night crawlers. Doug Geis of Old Reisterstown Bait and Tackle said he expects this for the next three or four weeks.

Susquehanna River -- Mike Benjamin of Herb's Tackle Shop reports few rockfish, "like everywhere else on the bay." Bass fishing has been good in the North East River, while catfish and white perch can be found anywhere.

Gunpowder River -- Theaux LeGardeur of Backwater Angler recommends that anglers limit the weighting and spend more time in shin-deep water along the edges of the stream. The water is at 52 degrees, with flow rates near 180 cubic feet per second. The trout - mostly wild brown trout in the 14- to 16-inch range - are taking elk hair caddis, bluewing olives and small streamers.

Patapsco River -- Nothing new, according to Tony Tochterman of Tochterman and Sons. Anglers are trolling with small tandem rigs and live-lining with bucktails to catch stripers. Overall, things are starting to drop off, including crabbing.

Ocean City -- Snapper blues were available day and night until a heavy storm last weekend, according to Sue Foster's report for Oyster Bay Tackle. Flounder and tautog did well during the day, while stripers and trout did well in the evening.
