As part of our effort to promote fishing and good fishing practices, we are starting of series about fishing in Hoard County, Maryland. Enjoy!
Lake Kittamaqundi is a man made 27-acre (110,000 m2) reservoir located in Columbia, Maryland in the vicinity of the Mall in Columbia. It is also adjacent to the Rouse Company's offices.
Fishing: Kittamaqundi is known to harbor lots of bluegill, a few crappie, and pumpkinseed. There are largemouth bass present, and perhaps some smallies. There also are bullheads. The pier isn’t very good on windy days, but there are shoals of bluegill present when it is not. The lake has gone a dramatic change since it was dredged, and is covered in hornwort, an invasive plant that tangles up in your equipment. It is crucial to wash equipment to prevent the spread of invasives, such as the didymo plague. Also, the trees that provided shelter for the fish were stripped during the creation of a trail. The fishing in lake Kittamaqundi at night is not advised, since the Howard County police reported teens gathering there at night, causing crime and violence.
Prime fishing spots: The Little Patuxent River flows out of the lake. You will know you see it when you pass a bridge over the river. The river contains two pools near the lake. They contain vast shoals of bluegill and largemouth.
