OK, if you're interested in smaller sunfish, the best place is the C and O
canal, off river road north of potomac. With a size 12 hook, you can
probably catch loads of longear sunfish (introduced).

Maryland's only got three native darters--tesselated, fantail, and
greenside. Rainbows were introduced into the Potomac drainage, and I know
that they used to be fairly numerous in Washington county.
