Each year I buy the annual Fishing in Md magazine.There are fishing maps of most areas-the Severn included.If you get a chance-take a good look at the spots and types of fish highlighted on the map.No exactly the most accurate and this map has not changed in something like 15 years :eek2: .
My thought was if we get together and give up a few hotspots-the SRRKC could get the by line and maybe a few more fisherman might sample the river.
Any thoughts on this ? Skip

My first thought is, why do we want more fisherman on Our River?:))
That hotspots map is about useless, I agree. And kidding aside, having more people fish the Severn ain't exactly a bad thing. The more peope who fish/crab it, the more who have a direct stake in its water quality. The problem with people who don't fish/crab the River is that, to those people, sunsets still look nice on it and boats still float in it. People who actually use the River's resources feel more directly the impact of poor water quality.

That works for me... now I'll finally get to know all your hot-spots! :pp

OK I'll start.
1. Look for deep water close to shore (short docks)
2. Fish the current
3. Look for structure
4. If all else fails drop some soft crab at the old RR Bridge.

I usually just look for Skip, Larry, JPW or any other SRRKC'r and fish where they've been. Maybe we can put a footnote on the chart saying that.

Actually, I have a better idea.:devil2: Most folks who own docks on the River are great, but there are a couple real jerks. Maybe we can advise the chartmaker to mark those docks as hotspots for everything from Bluegill to Makos.
