The Maryland portion of the Youghiogheny, or Yough (pronounced Yock) as it’s called by locals, is a river with many different faces. It starts off in low gradient farmland before it gains water, and turns into a steep gradient class 3-5 whitewater river at Swallow Falls State Park. After the park it becomes much mellower between Hoyes Run Road and the Sang Run Road bridge. This section is cooled by a cold water discharge from Deep Creek Lake, and supports large trout and great hatches.

Downstream of Sang Run, it becomes a whitewater beast, providing fun for kayakers and rafters before running through Friendsville, MD. There is a good delayed harvest section in Friendsville that continues downstream to the mouth of Youghiogheny Lake.
