In the Chesapeake Bay anglers sometimes gray trout in the spring and fall in very shallow water. Gray trout are caught near Smith, Tangier, Watts, South Marsh and Fox Islands. Shallow water fishing for trout can be very exciting as the fish are usually caught together with speckled trout, croaker, striped bass, bluefish, flounder, and drum. In the same areas, saltwater fly fishermen also catch trout. Shallow water fishing in the Chesapeake Bay is often best from sunset to midnight.
