Liberty Reservoir, on the border between Carroll and Baltimore counties, is a popular spot for fishing. Built by Baltimore City for use as a public water supply, it was completed on July 8, 1954. However, it is also home to a number of fish species, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie and white perch. The reservoir also was stocked with striped bass between 1981 and 1984. They can now be caught in the 40-pound range, according to the state Department of Natural Resources Web site.

Mud. Thick, gooey, slimy mud. Mud that turned the shoreline of PineyRun Lake into a quagmire. Mud that sucked your boots in right up to the ankles.That's how many participants will remember Saturday's ninth annual Early Bird Fishing Tournament.Rain. A nasty, driving downpour that made anyone without proper rainwear a candidate for pneumonia.But then that's the sort of weather anglers have come to expect from this annual event. Last year, it snowed.Cold. When Roland Brown checked in with his prize-winning trout, his fingers were so numb he hardly could get the fish out ofthe creel.

Despite the brief return of winter this past week, local fishing conditions are improving daily. Last Saturday, after getting an on-the-spot minor rod repair at the Reisterstown Bait and Tackle fishing shop, I ran by Liberty Reservoir's popular Nicodemus Bridge, which connects Baltimore and Carroll counties. A number of anglers were lined along the bridge.I parked my car and walked the Carroll County shoreline and came across a dozen or more hopeful anglers. A few hundred yards south of the bridge, Jim Myers, of Eldersburg, was casting for bass on a point of land jutting into the water.

Many days, the fish aren't biting, but the weather sure is. Temperatures dip below freezing. Each breath forms a frosty cloud. Even the poor minnows -- destined to be bait -- slosh in buckets of icy water. None of this deters the fishermen, who show up on even the coldest mornings at the Dulaney Valley Road bridge over Loch Raven Reservoir in Timonium to go against the crafty crappie, a type of sunfish. They share techniques, fish stories and camaraderie. "We've become friends," says James Cooper, 57, of Edgewood.

Fishing report The locations Piney Run: Jim Gronaw at the park office says that the lake is having a great year in terms of fishing. Stripers, bluegills, yellow perch, crappies and a host of other fish are being caught. And they're super size. Gronaw says that he has written out 61 citations for eight different species of fish. It's been a great year for knowledgeable striper fishermen trolling live bait. Most of those fish are being released to be caught another day as well. Wax worms and night crawlers are attracting big saucer size bluegill.

The locations Piney Run: Yellow perch, crappie and bluegill fishing has been excellent. Target any kind of structure, especially piers and beaver huts. Use fathead minnows or red worms, say Loren Lustig and Jim Gronow at the park office. Trevor Reese, 17, of Manchester caught a 35 1/2 -inch tiger musky on a minnow from the fishing pier. Westminster's Jim Jones took home first place in the second annual Slab Buster Crappie Tournament last Saturday, with a 0.79-pound crappie. Many 10-inch bluegills are being caught.
