- Notes: Three man made ponds are located on public property adjacent to Evitt's Creek.The stream banks of this part of the creek are private property. There is a path along the berm of each pond, Significant algae and vegetation growth during summer months limit fishing fun in the warmer months. These ponds are usually stocked but due to Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings in close quarters, the MD Fisheries Service will not be stocking the ponds.. Warm spring days and freshly stocked, would normally bring hoards of people to these ponds. The area receives considerable trash and debris from associated activities of families fishing.
