I’ve had a few people contact us looking for fishing recommendations and lake water temperatures:

We do have a temperature gauge at the north lake and here are the experts from the Maryland DNR with the July 8th fishing report: “The fishing scene at Deep Creek Lake and similar western region reservoirs has transitioned into a typical summer pattern of fish behavior. Trout can be found deep along the dam face; walleye and yellow perch are deep along grass edges; and smallmouth and largemouth bass are holding under or near floating docks and moored boats, seeking cool shade.”

Maryland State Police McHenry Barrack responded to Accident, Maryland for five (5) signs with derogatory statements. Anyone with information about the suspect responsible should contact the Maryland State Police McHenry Barrack at 301-387-1101. Callers may remain anonymous.

The first rabies case of 2020 was reported in Garrett County.

Our local Health Department has also shared an alert for opioid overdoses and a federal warning on hand sanitizer.

We, regretfully, had an error in our Dining Guide. Pine Lodge Steakhouse DOES HAVE A DOCK! The restaurant itself is just a few steps from ample boat parking.

The Manor Steakhouse has new extended hours on Fridays: 4pm – 9 pm. Reservations recommended.

Garrett College students were recently responsible for preventing two different types of invasive species from entering Deep Creek Lake! Good work to the students, the DCL Property Owners Association, and other watershed groups for their diligence, cooperation, and good work!

As of publication this morning, we have 19 positive COVID-19 cases here in Garrett County.
