Flowing from Maryland into Pennsylvania is a popular trout fishing destination known as Casselman River. The Department of Natural Resources stocks this river regularly with rainbow and brown trout. The best time to fish here is during the late winter or early spring. Because this river is free-flowing, it tends to have low flows and warm water temperatures in the summer months. These warmer water temperatures can be deadly to the trout, which begin to die off at the end of June. The banks of the Casselman River are easy to access. There’s even a handicapped access area downriver of the overpass of Interstate 68 that allows people in wheelchairs to fish the banks. While much of the land around the river is privately owned, the landowners will often allow anglers to access the banks for fishing.
