Water is still a bit chilly for the Smallies, but the Steelhead are in; my neighbor went on Thursday and picked up two Nats, and one Bow, just down stream from Elkton....hang in there the water will warm up soon...

I plunk for winters down there but for springers I'm not sure. There are so many ways to fish for them. I here you can plunk for them but i have never done it and i think you would use a little heavier gear than i use for winter steelhead.
