Hey there fisherpeople:  By my rough count, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources has placed over 40,000 trout in the state’s lakes and streams, including in Garrett County.  These fish, along with others, are just waiting for anglers to try their luck at catching them.  Here’s a link for you to learn more.

And, speaking of the Maryland DNR, campers looking to reserve a campsite on Maryland’s public lands can now use the Department of Natural Resources online reservation system to book one of 18 primitive sites at Savage River State Forest’s Big Run campground in Garrett County.

The results for USA Today’s Best Recreational Trail are in! The nearby C&O Canal Towpath finished eighth in the voting, and the adjoining Great Allegheny Passage finished ninth. Here’s the scoop.

Authorities are investigating numerous acts of vandalism at Broadford Lake Park. The incidents occurred in January and February. Oakland City Police were alerted that structures in the park were spray painted with obscene pictures, words, and identifying names like “Tay-Tay” and “DJ”. It is estimated the damages to the park total several thousand dollars. A reward is being offered for any information leading to an arrest. Please contact the Oakland Police Department at (301) 334-2100 or oaklandmdpolice@gmail.com with any information.
