Two spots in Dorchester County, Maryland are part of the statewide Fly Fishing Trail, the first statewide fly fishing trail in the nation. From how to get there, where to park and launch a boat, where to fly fish, what fly fishing gear and which fishing flies are recommended, even specifics on which species can seasonally at each Trail Site—it’s all there in the Fly Fishing Trail.
The trail – organized by Fish & Hunt Maryland – includes these Dorchester County locations:
Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge: Offering unique opportunities for fly fishing for northern snakeheads, striped bass, speckled trout, redfish, flounder and bluefish.
The Honga River: From the trail site’s boat launch in Church Creek in Dorchester County, you get access to the full menu of lower Eastern Shore fish species—striped bass, speckled trout, redfish, flounder, bluefish, spot, spanish mackerel, flounder, croaker and black drum. After you make your way down Wallace Creek, you will find yourself in the Honga River and miles and miles of pristine shorelines and shallow-water habitats to explore.
