fly fishing in maryland's Patapsco river

Maryland's Patapsco river is ideal to learn how to fly fish!

In the spirit of convenience, we've made it easy to access your favorite waters.

We all need a little luxury time in our lives, especially when it comes to fishing. You’ll want to pack in a few snacks for the walk to make sure you get the best fish spots possible. 

The best fly pattern is one that lures fish all day. Switching between top water and sinking flies is not a gimmick. It’s smart fishmanship. And, it will help you fish smarter and more efficiently than ever before. So, cover plenty of water with a nymph rig and show your flies to all those fish which lure anglers can’t get to.

Go on a day trip to the stretch along River Road – Avalon. Or take a hike along the lower stretches of the Avalon area where few venture, get yourself some private moments on intimate fly fishing waters in the middle of the hustle and bustle of DC or Baltimore city life. 


The only way to get better at fly fishing is by spending time on the water.

Finding your moment on the river happens only when you’re ready to find it. Fly fishing is a sport and passion. It takes time to learn the waters you fish and the techniques that work on each river. This can only be done by spending time out on the water, experiencing how the weather affects your fishing and always making that last cast count.

It’s the perfect time to escape the hustle and bustle of your city by exploring Baltimore’s hidden gem—the urban wilderness.

The Baltimore region is a hiker’s and fly anglers paradise—miles of trails, river and streams flow through these three distinct areas, taking the both hikers and fly anglers on a journey that features stunning vistas, hidden treasures of the past, babbling brooks, pleasing waterfalls and a sense of wilderness that is within steps of the suburbs of Baltimore.

Begin your day with a trip to the Avalon area of Patapsco State Park. Here you will have access to non-tidal fishing waters, which means you can target species like trout, smallmouth bass and even rock fish as well as snake-head.

Quiet, peaceful and selfcare. Your perfect escape on Maryland waters.

Be mindful of weather, avoiding the crowds and your personal comfort level. Don’t be afraid to stop and take a break when you need to. And remember: hydrate if you’re going to be doing any activity that could make you sweat a lot or even just walking and wading around all day.
