- Fishing Report
Please be aware of Redds!! It is our job as anglers to make sure we protect the health of our fisheries for ourselves and future generations. Please know what a Redd looks like and keep an eye out on every trout stream you frequent. To play it safe, stay off the gravel in a stream whenever possible until April.
Here's some info and pictures if you don't know what to look for: http://www.ginkandgasoline.com/trout-fishing/dont-tread-on-my-redd-3/
Beaver Creek is looking pretty good. Ants and beetles on top or sunk and midges or scuds nymphed on the bottom. There is also some dry fly fishing with midges and caddis. With this cool weather we should start to see some blue wing olives at some point.
Potomac River smallmouth fishing is picking back up again. It got a little slow for a bit for the fall bite seems to be turning on. Not sure how long it will last this year. Safe Wading levels on the Point of Rocks gauge should read about 1.75 feet.
Big Hunting Creek is still running pretty low. If you must fish it, the best water will most likely be from the Camp Peniel Bridge downstream.

It's been a great year on this river and is definitely worth the trip whenever you have time.
