Pine Hill Run Fishing Description

All About Fishing in Pine Hill Run, MD

Pine Hill Run is a fairly long stream, despite its semi-tranquil flowing waters, many fish species have been found swimming through its currents. Since it's connected to a large pond, many of the fish that go through it are of a larger variety. Whatever you catch in this stream has a high chance of being respectably sized. The most popular fish species caught in the area are largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and muskellunge. The locals have also consistently caught other fish species like bluegill and crappie

The suburban areas nearby the stream will have no shortage of baiting shops. You can be assured that there will be high-quality fishing gear and equipment in the area should you find yourself lacking before starting your fishing trip. The largemouth bass is one of the most popular species to catch here, so it’s best to bring live bait they enjoy like shad, shinners, or crayfish. Bring small plastic bait, bladed bait, or jerk bait if you want to catch smallmouth bass. If you want to catch muskellunge, bring minnows, carp, or ciscoes. However, these are large and strong, so use heavy action rods to increase your chances.
