Wilde Lake is a 22-acre man-made lake built by the Columbia Association during the time of 1967. The lake depth ranges from 13 feet to around 8 feet in the lake’s center. The dam stands 15 feet high and 200 feet wide with the dam face constructed of four poured concrete step. The dam itself is very good for fishing largemouth.
Fishing: Wilde Lake’s dam has some great fishing in the pool at it’s foot. The residential half, where the homes are, cannot be fished due to the complaints of residents. The pier makes for poor fishing, but the surrounding area with the trees has some nice schools of slab crappies and monster bullheads. It can be accessed near Hyla Brook Road in The Birches neighborhood off Little Patuxent Parkway.
Prime Fishing Spots: Wilde Lake’s pier is too frequented and makes for a bad day’s fishing. The treeline, and the small stream, are great fishing spots.
Hi. I am Ian, an extremely avid bass fisherman living in Howard County, MD. I like to bank fish and fish at local ponds and small creeks. I will explore budget friendly options for people to use in this blog. I hope I can teach you something.
