Fishing - Talbot County

Talbot County
The Crown Jewel of the Chesapeake Bay

Sailing the Chesapeake Bay nearly four centuries ago, Captain John Smith penned: “Heaven and earth never agreed better to frame a place for man’s habitation.” The Chesapeake’s past is never far from its present. In the scenic hamlets and villages among coves, rivers, and creeks of Talbot County, you will find that boat builders, watermen, skipjacks, packing houses, and museums keep our rich maritime history alive.

Hooked on Talbot County Fishing has been popular in Talbot County for over 13,000 years when people first arrived at what is now known as Paw Paw Cove. The tradition lives on and offers sports enthusiasts the perfect opportunity to get in touch with the Bay. From striped bass, bluefish, sea trout, drum, Atlantic croaker and Norfolk spot - it’s easy to get hooked on fishing Talbot County’s rivers and bays.
