Broadford Lake, located in Garrett County, was built in 1972 as a water supply reservoir for the town of Oakland. In 1975, the Lake was opened for fishing. Broadford Lake Park provides not only fishing but also other activities such as swimming, biking, canoeing, and kayaking. The park has one boat ramp, and rental boats are available at the park’s concession stand. Broadford Lake supports a wide variety of fish species including largemouth bass, yellow perch, bluegill and tiger muskies. Smallmouth bass are also present and can be found near the dam breast and rocky areas of the lake. If you are an avid fly-fisher, the lake offers sunfish. The Lake also has a spring stock of about 2,000 rainbow trout that further adds to the fishing opportunities.

Another fantastic place to fish is Deep Creek Lake. Located right on the Lake, our beautiful Inn is the perfect place to start your visit. Deep Creek Lake is unique in that it lies within the Ohio River Drainage west of the eastern continental divide. The 3,900 acres of water is a fishing enthusiast’s paradise. Supporting a wide variety of desirable game fish species, the Lake is best known for its bass fishery. The smallmouth bass are the most common species; however, largemouth bass generally anchor the catches of winning anglers during the frequent bass fishing tournaments. If you are searching for a beautiful bass, large mouthed or small mouthed, Deep Creek Lake is the spot to prow. Walleye, yellow perch, northern pike and Chain pickerel can be found in the deep waters of the picturesque lake!

The Savage River Tailwater Trophy Trout Fishing Area lies within the Savage River State Forest and provides ample public access. Experience the natural beauty of the area while kicking back and fishing on the Savage River. The river is about 55 feet in width and flows 4 miles.
