The daily bag limit for all trout species caught in Maryland state waters is two fish. For Put-and-Take areas, the daily bag limit is five trout except for brook trout which cannot be retained at all. There are also designated Catch-and-Return areas from which no trout can be harvested.
Any persons over the age of fifteen fishing in Maryland waters must obtain a valid Maryland fishing license which is good for a full year from the date of purchase. Freshwater and saltwater fishing licenses are available for purchase for both resident and non-residents of Maryland.
