Some not so good reports from MD. DNR

Didymo found in the Gunpowder below Prettyboy Dam

An invasive and potentially detrimental algae known as Didymo (Didymosphenia geminata) has been identified in the Gunpowder River below Prettyboy Dam. This algae, also known as 'rock snot', can have negative impacts on stream biota such as aquatic insects. It can also hinder reproduction of trout and other fish species. Anglers and boaters are asked to take the same precautions that were suggested for containing whirling disease and other invasive species. . Scrub all gear to remove mud and plants . Drain all water from bilges and livewells, don't move water from one area to another . We recommend the use of new 'sticky rubber' wading boots to facilitate cleaning, if you must use felts allow them to dry completely before moving to another waterbody.
