Maryland fly fishing Patapsco river Maryland

The Patapsco River is the last link in a chain of rivers that feed into Chesapeake Bay. It flows through Maryland, and is one of the most interesting features you’ll see at Patapsco State Park. The river is tidal throughout its entire length, with low levels at high tide but maintaining its elevation throughout the year.

The upper section consists mostly of marshy areas along its banks where wildlife can be seen including bald eagles and osprey birds as well as great blue heron nests along with ducks, geese and other waterfowl species living here too! In addition the Patapsco River supports an abundance of aquatic life including bass and even trout, sunfish, snake-head and the odd stripped bass.
