Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, white crappie, walleye, rainbow trout, brown trout, bluegill, yellow perch, white perch and striped bass at Liberty Reservoir in Maryland.

Big bass, walleye and stripers draw anglers to Liberty Reservoir, a 3,100-acre lake in the north-central part of the state. The fishery is managed for both warm-water and cold-water species, including bass, catfish, crappie, walleye, trout, sunfish, perch and striped bass. Boating is restricted to rowing, paddling, or battery-powered motors, which helps limit the fishing pressure. There are over 80 miles of shoreline, some of which is strewn with brush and lay-downs, which the fish use for cover. Numerous access points around the lake are favorable for fishing from the bank. Kayaks and canoes are popular here, as are car-toppers. Two campgrounds are nearby for those who enjoy camping.
