Winter Delays Opening of Little Seneca Lake

February 27, 2015

Boaters and anglers will have to wait a couple weeks longer before they can satisfy their desire to hit the lake and go fishing.

   Montgomery Parks, part of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, has delayed the official opening of Little Seneca Lake in Black Hill Regional Park and Lake Needwood in Rock Creek Regional Park until March 14 for recreational boating, fishing and other uses, due to the current weather conditions. The original planned opening date of March.

   Boaters with a daily or seasonal boating permit will be allowed to use their private boats on the lakes starting March 14 from 6:00 am until official sunset. Seasonal permits may be purchased at the Black Hill Visitor Center or the Needwood Mansion.

   Daily permit fees can be deposited in the fee boxes at the boat ramps or other launching locations around each lake. Seasonal mooring stakes for private boats are sold at both locations on a first-come, first-served basis. Boat rentals at both lakes will not be available until May 3.

   Fishing from private boats at both lakes is permitted beginning on March 14. (Year-round fishing is permitted at both lakes from the shoreline.) All Maryland State Fishing Regulations for inland waters apply, and people ages 16 and older must have a Maryland Fishing License. Trophy Bass Fishing Regulations are in effect at Little Seneca Lake. Largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill, and crappie, are some of the fish species found in both lakes. Please view the Regulations for Private Boats for complete information.

   All boats must comply with Maryland State, U.S. Coast Guard and M-NCPPC regulations and standards. Use of gasoline motors is strictly prohibited; only electric motors are permitted. All boats must be off the lake by official sunset. For a complete list of regulations, please visit BlackHillBoats.com or Lake NeedwoodBoats.com.

   For information about fishing licenses, please contact the Maryland Department of Natural Resources at 1-855-855-3906, or visit www.dnr.maryland.gov and use their new “COMPASS” Online Licensing and Registration System.
