Things to Do
Fishing & Hunting
St. Mary’s County has always been a favorite place to fish and for good reason!
This peninsula is bounded by the Patuxent and Potomac Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay so we’ve got wide open water, fast flowing rivers, serene tidal creeks and even a fine freshwater trophy bass lake! If you’re a serious fisherman or you're just casting about for some fun, we can deliver. Our state parks and wildlife management areas provide great hunting terrains.
