Go Fishing Now in Maryland!
Fishing in Maryland is anchored by two amazing fisheries, the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay. Both have been regular hosts to professional and recreational anglers from across the world for their largemouth, smallmouth and, in the case of the Chesapeake, striped bass fishing.
Maryland is not just limited to these two magnificent fisheries. Numerous lakes, rivers and creeks fill this Mid-Atlantic State.
Take a look at our listing of fishing lodging accommodations from camping to house rentals. Also, there are a number of top quality guides who regularly fish these Maryland waters.
The sunrise photograph of the Chesapeake Bay that invites every Striped Bass fisherman to get their fishing trip started is provided by ssgrecco.

Maryland Fishing Directory
Capt. Bruce Wootten
Capt. Bruce Wooten is a Maryland and Virginia fishing guide. He fishes both freshwater and saltwater. Since we focus on freshwater fishing here at Go Fishing Now, that's what we'll discuss but some of his flounder and striper fishing pics are impressive. Capt. Bruce has been guiding for over 20 years. So, you know you are getting experience when you book with him. He has numerous freshwater options for your fishing trip. He charters on the Pocomoke, Wicomico, Nanticoke, Choptank, Sassafrass and Potomac Rivers. He also freshwater fishes the Upper Chesapeake Bay. Uniquely, he offers four hour pond fishing trips on waters ranging from 5 to 100 acres. So whether you are on vacation, trying to learn one of these waters to fish again, or preparing for a bass tournament, Capt. Bruce will get you started with his years of knowledge and experience.
Ken Penrod's Life Outdoors Unlimited
There may not be a name more synonymous with Mid-Atlantic fishing than Ken Penrod. This reputation only comes with a long history of providing quality guide services in some of this area's best fishing spots. Ken Penrod's Life Outdoors Unlimited has been a long standing fishing guide service in the Mid-Atlantic. While the service is operated by Ken Penrod, he uses many guides to cover the areas of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and District of Columbia. Waters that they fish include Susquehanna River, Potomac River, Chesapeake Bay, Deep Creek Lake, Sassafras River, Choptank River, Nanticoke River, Wicomico River, and Pocomoke River. They fish primarily for smallmouth bass and largemouth bass. There is a ton of information on his web site including regularly updated fishing reports. I have been following these reports for years. Ken has also published a book call Pursuing River Smallmouth which should be considered a must read. I could go on a long time about their fishing reputation in this area but look for yourself and I am confident you will be impressed.
