Spent a couple of days fishing the rivers and streams in Garrett County, MD. Water was low and trout skitterish. This called for light lines (2# test) and smaller lures.

Low water in Lostland Run area of NB

One area we fished was the Lostland Run area of the North Branch of the Potomac. To effectively fish the river you need to cross over the river and use the railroad tracks to make your way either up or downstream.

Most trout were in the 14-17" range - not quite as large or plentiful as in the Spring. Beautiful time to be outside fishing with NO ONE around.

This is REAL trout fishing - no artificial bait - just lures
IMHO lures are classified as artificial bait.
Hey Ron no problem.

When I started trout in Michigan we only used spinner or worms. I don't think power bait was around then.

I was just out at DCL the week before you were out there. Just fished the lake a little and enjoyed the time away from home and work.
I still have my bait canteen from when I was 16 or so. And my Articreel.

Need new waders as I have out grown my waders. I'm going to try a local stream this weekend and just walk the banks.

We stayed at the Willow O The Wisp Condo's just across from the SP.

I fished off the their docks.
Never made it here..

We ate at the Black Bear Tavern and Restaurant(some of the best Cream of Crab soup I've had), Pine Lodge Steak House, Little Sandy's, Annie's Kitchen Country Restaurant and Ledo's.

I know about no felt in MD.

The Condo's have a great pool and 2 tier hot tub.
I meet the Wll O property manger while we were there. Real nice gentlemen.

My wife and I haven't tries Ace, even though we stayed at the Will O twice.

Anybody eaten there? How is it?

Where is Martin?
My mistake. I thought Martin was a place to eat at.
