All of our guided trips are fly fishing only and catch and release.
PRIVATE WATER FLY FISHING TRIPS:
Beaver Creek Fly Shop offers private water fly fishing trips on the Doub's Mill property on the beautiful Beaver Creek. These trips offer exclusive fishing access to a historic property on this limestone spring creek. The stream meanders slowly through the upper portions of the property, offering wonderful dry fly opportunities to try and catch some very large fish, and then spills over 3 dams that once powered the grist mill. The fishing below the dams offers a totally different kind of fishing opportunity with large riffles, back eddies and a very large pool below the main dam called the "mill pond." The stream is full of a mix of wild brown trout and rainbows with a few small rainbows that end up here from the stocking programs in the put and take waters up stream or below the dams. The Doub's mill property has an additional rod fee on top of our guide rates which are listed at the bottom of the page. The rod fee is $40 when fishing with a guide. After you fish with us and we feel you are respectful to the property, anglers are welcome back for a rod fee of $60 when there are no trips on the property that day. You must call ahead and schedule your trip with the shop. We reserve the right to ask you to reschedule your trip if someone wants to book a guide trip on the same day. Beaver Creek offers excellent year round fishing and trips can be booked any time of year. For more information on the property and the fishermen's cottage please visit www.doubsmill.com

PUBLIC WATER FLY FISHING TRIPS:
We offer trips on Beaver Creek, Big Hunting Creek, Little Hunting Creek and Owens Creek. Please give us a call or shoot us an email and we can discuss what streams would best fit what you would like to do for the day. Almost all of the water we fish is for wild trout. The only exception to that would be lower Owens Creek. This stream is stocked but most of the fish do holdover through the summer and the stream is under catch and release regulations for the majority of the year. Beaver Creek is Maryland's largest limestone spring creek and the only one with public access. It holds the largest population of wild fish per hectare of water in the state and the fish grow extremely fast and large. There is always the chance to hook into something really big any day of the week. Big Hunting, Little Hunting and Owens creeks are freestone streams and in the case of Big Hunting, also a small tail-water. These streams flow through Catoctin Mountain Park and offer up some of the most beautiful water in the region. These streams contain high-gradient pocket water accompanied by long pools and runs and shaded by large hemlocks and hardwoods. These fish generally do not get as big as they would in a spring creek but every once in a while you can find one around 15" which is a true trophy for small mountain streams. Generally, trips on these streams should be booked for the fall and spring. Summer fishing gets tough with low water conditions. Beaver Creek trips are available any time of year. Prices are at the bottom of the page.
PENNSYLVANIA'S CUMBERLAND VALLEY:
We highly recommend the services of Mike Heck for Pennsylvania trout streams just right up the road from our shop. Trips are available to Falling Springs Branch, Big Spring Creek, The Letort and some of the lesser known freestone streams around the area. These streams are right near the shop, just over the state line into Pennsylvania and no one knows these streams better then Mike.
