Multi-species Kayak Fishing Hunting Creek Lake (MD)

on May 5th

I fished the whole of the lake concentrating on lay-down trees with deep water access. Target Species: primarily crappie Bait/Lures: flyfishing (bead head nymphs) and Minnows on float Summary: crappie fishing was excellent. My friend and I caught well over 50 crappie ranging from 6''-14''. We released the vast majority because they were full of eggs for the spawn. If you visit, please do the same to keep the fishery strong. Trout were present and being caught regularly by other fisherman using Powerbait. Large sunfish as well were available and were taking flies well. Lastly, I caught several Largemouth bass (10''-16'') on my minnow presentation.
