The Deep Creek Lake Management Office has observed a small patch of hydrilla in Windy Cove that was approximately 5 meters in diameter and in less than 3 feet of water. This is the first new occurrence of hydrilla in the lake since the find of hydrilla in Arrowhead Cove in August 2017. Due to concern about the further spread of the plant, the patch of hydrilla will be treated with a fast-acting contact herbicide today Friday, Sept. 11, 2020. Access to the cove will be limited very briefly while the applicator is conducting the treatment, but there are no water use restrictions once complete. An overview of the 2020 Hydrilla plan is available here. And, a map showing the new hydrilla patch location (yellow thumbtack) is seen below:

“Largemouth and smallmouth bass [in Deep Creek Lake] are best targeted early morning and late evening until waters cool a bit further. Work shallow grass and structure with topwater lures and switch to diving crankbaits and soft plastics during the brighter periods of the day. Crappie are beginning to school up near bridge piers, bluegills can be found near docks, and trout and walleye are deep along the dam wall. See more on the DNR Fishing Report.
