After a long wait: DON PATRON IS NOW OPEN! They had a soft opening yesterday … no tequila yet folks … and will be launching a grand opening soon.

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.
