A later start to the walleye season has resulted in the largest member of the perch family being "the most abundant fish species" in Deep Creek Lake, according to Al Klotz, Western Regional Fisheries Manager for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. The season, which began Wednesday, starts with a daily creel limit of five and 15-inch minimum size limit. Klotz said several walleyes more than 20 inches long have already been spotted or caught. Aside from Deep Creek Lake, walleye are plentiful in the Youghiogheny River Reservoir, Jennings Randolph Lake, Savage River Reservoir, Potomac River and Liberty Reservoir.

Jennings Randolph Reservoir in Garrett County is perhaps best known in the rest of the state for the innovative net pens at the base of the dam that produce tremendous trout. But the impoundment on the North Branch of the Potomac River also produces decent bass fishing and an occasional monster walleye.On May 16, John McCarley of Union Bridge was fishing a crawfish-colored crankbait for smallmouth bass on the reservoir upstream from Luke, when he had a walleye encounter of the state-record kind.

KEN PAVOL probably wonders - this year more than others - whether those young men from the lake ever stop to utter a quiet prayer of thanks for what happened that day. When they sit down to big family dinners during the holidays, do they ever reflect on the 25 years of life they were given by two strangers? It's a question Pavol lives with - not obsessively, but intermittently, and this year more than others - because he doesn't know what happened to the young men and because the events of that day in 1975 had a profound effect on him. There were three young men - two who slapped each other on the back and crowed about having cheated death, and one who was so wet and frozen he could not speak as the ambulance crew took him away.

DEEP CREEK LAKE -- It's dark out here on Maryland's largest lake. The moon is obscured by patches of low drifting fog.Fishing lights mounted on the gunwale of guide Bill Teeter's bassboat reveal a small rocky island nearby; elsewhere there are lights from shoreside summer homes, and the green, white and red blubs of other boats cutting the waves in all directions.On summer nights, Deep Creek Lake is a busy place. There are joyriders and there are fishermen -- and some of the latter are scooting by in bag bassboats after a cast or two here 'n there.

DULUTH, Minn. -- July.August.Bugs are down. Days are warm. But where have those walleyes gone?For a lot of anglers, June is prime time for walleye fishing. The fish are hungry and usually shallow, and the fishing is good.Come July and August, the walleyes sometimes aren't where they used to be, and that can be frustrating. But fishing guides don't go water-skiing in July and August. They keep fishing. And they keep catching fish.Some guides think late-summer fishing can be even better than that of early summer.

The Potomac River above Great Falls long has been an excellent place to fish for bass in all seasons, especially for smallmouths, which many fishermen say outfight largemouths, pound for pound.But along the same stretch of river above the fall line, a relative newcomer, the tiger muskie, is making its mark in a fishery well known for its quality and quantity of black bass."Tiger muskie have a different, larger body type than bass," DNR fisheries biologist John Mullican said last week. "They make quick, ambush strikes and they put up a short but spectacular fight."
