The Pocomoke River is lovely at any time of year, but spring is special. From the small community of Rehobeth upstream past Pocomoke City and Snow Hill to Porter’s Crossing, the river’s bald cypress trees are putting out their soft green needles, and if you look closely, you’ll see a flash of bright gold in the trees as a male prothonotary warbler shows off to attract a mate. Largemouth bass, crappie, and chain pickerel chase minnows among the stems of the broad-leaved spatterdock marshes growing in the shallows.The Pocomoke river rises at the easternmost point in the Chesapeake watershed in Sussex County, Delaware, then flows through Maryland’s Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset Counties to Pocomoke Sound in Accomack County, Virginia. It is part of the northernmost cypress swamp on the Atlantic coast.
