The Casselman River is popular with fly fishermen. The Casselman River flows down stream to the Youghiogheny River confluence.

The best section for fly fishing on the Casselman River is the Delayed Harvest Trout Fishing Area where you can go after the stocked brown trout and rainbow trout. It is managed as catch and release with artificial flies from October through mid-June.

To reach the fly fishing access for the Casselman River from US68, use Exit #19 for Grantsville. Proceed into Grantsville and turn right on Route 40 E. Proceed about .5 mile to the Casselman River Bridge State Park on the left, or continue on Route 40 across a steel bridge and turn left onto River Road. River Road parallels the river to the PA State Line, about five miles. There are ample pull-offs along the road, and please be respectful of the private property owners that are allowing fisherman access. Try the access from Casselman River Bridge State Park.

Overall, Casselman River is the 4th most popular fly fishing river of all 5 fly fishing spots in Maryland.
