Freshwater Fishing Hot Spots in Prince Georges County
Governor's Bridge Natural Area and Canoe Launch is located near the Bowie Baysox Stadium. At one time, the property was an active sand and gravel mining operation. Abandoned in the 1960's, the land was neglected for years. In the 1980's the property was selected as a "mitigation" site and a restoration plan was developed to return the land to its natural environment. Today, large mouth bass flourish in the 8 acre lake. A loop trail encircles the lake and provides excellent opportunities for hiking, bicycling, nature study and fishing. The park is managed as "catch and release" for bass.
