This week’s fall foliage report is issued — I’m not sure what stage they are reporting Garrett County to be in right now. The trees were really starting to look good early two weeks ago but then it rained and it sort of stalled the change. Now, this map shows sort of heading to “past peak”? But, I’m looking out the window and I see a few bare trees but also a majority of green…. sigh …. I guess we just have to be patient.

Life on Deep Creek Lake is beginning to settle down, as there is less boat traffic and floating docks are being pulled each week.

Cooler water temperatures mean better fishing for smallmouth bass. Other species such as largemouth, yellow perch, and walleye will start to be more accessible. Casting tubes and small crankbaits near rocky points and sunken wood is a good way to fish both kinds of bass. Drifting along deep grass lines with live minnows often will attract a variety of species. Crappie are schooling up near the bridge piers. Read more in the DNR’s fishing report.
