General Information

Fishing at Deep Creek Lake State Park
Copyright: - Maryland State Forest and Park Service
Fishing at Deep Creek Lake State Park
Description - The lakes and reservoirs in Maryland range from large reservoirs to small lakes. Several of the lakes are a result of US Army Corp. of Engineer projects whose objective is to improve water quality, reduce flood damage, provide a source of water supply for municipalities and industries, and to afford the public a recreation resource.

Attractions - Maryland has a variety of water resources that stretch across the entire state. From the western Appalachian Plateau with its huge reservoirs to the hemlock framed whitewaters of the central region to the southern border of the historic Potomac River and eastbound to the Chesapeake Bay which holds the reputation as being one of the world's richest shellfish estuaries. The Eastern Shore is a mariner's paradise laced with tea-colored streamlets and bayside harbors that extend to the Atlantic. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy an array of water sports including motorboating, sea kayaking, wind surfing, whitewater rafting, and many more including all spectrums of sport fishing.

Recreation - These lakes and reservoirs offer the full range of water based activities. Some of the most popular activities include fishing, boating, water-skiing, sailing, windsurfing, swimming, and canoeing. The shores of these lakes often offer camping and picnicking opportunities.

Climate - Maryland has four distinct seasons with spring and fall being particularly pleasant with low humidity and mild temperatures. The average January temperature ranges between 30 and 34 degrees F (-1 to 1 C) with July averages ranging between 74 degrees F and 80 degrees F. Typically, coastal temperatures are slightly warmer then the western Appalachian Plateau area. Travelers should be aware that winters can become miserably cold and summers can be hazy, hot and humid with afternoon thundershowers.

Location - Maryland's various and lakes and reservoirs are found throughout all five travel regions.
