Worcester County

_DSC3244From Ocean City and Assateague Island to our charming coastal communities along the Pocomoke River, Worcester County is Maryland’s only seaside county. We offer a free Angler’s Guide available for our Ocean and Coastal Bays as well as for the Pocomoke River and Tidal Creeks. Worcester County offers a unique blend of big city excitement in and around the resort community of Ocean City, and relaxing country ambience in the central and southern areas of our county. We’ve become well known for our championship golf courses, deep-sea fishing, historic towns and villages, scenic byways, and of course, our clean, sandy beach of Ocean City and Assateague State Park.

With shore and deep-sea fishing, Worcester County offers the very best saltwater fishing opportunities in all of Maryland. Chase a white marlin, bluefin tuna, or a shark in the Atlantic, or stick to the bay for a relaxing day reeling in flounder. A perfect place for fishermen of all ages, we invite you to come explore Maryland’s beaches and beyond.
