The Casselman is now closed due to property owners not giving permission for it to be fished. We will update as soon as something changes. Please respect the land owners wishes and do not fish. Update on the Casselman River. The property owners have decided to keep the section from the old stone bridge down stream to the new steel bridge as no trespassing and no fishing access at least for the rest of the year. They will readdress the situation next year. They wanted to thank the fishermen that were respectful to their property. They also own more property downstream of the steel bridge and that will stay open to fishermen for the time being. Also the MDDNR will no longer stock the closed section as long as it is posted.

The Casselman River is located in Garrett County Maryland. It is a medium sized river which ranges in width from 30 to 70 feet. There are many long productive riffle sections, deep runs, large deep holes, and even some pocket water.

Natural flows can fluctuate especially during the spring, so please check for flow conditions. Flows less than 150 cubic foot per second (cfs) are considered good fishing flows.
