The Savage is nice. Plenty of cheap camping at either New Germany State Park or in Savage State Forest all along areas of the lake and Big Run road(I think that's the name). Above the lake is all native brookie fishing. Below the lake is all wild browns. The lower is certainly bigger water and tougher water to wade/fish. Check the kayaking/dam release schedule on the lower Savage, a few times a year they do a big release from the dam for the whitewater kayak crowd and the lower will be virtually unfishable. Pretty much all the little streams in the area of the lake have brookies.
Remember that felt boots are illegal in Maryland. Make sure to clean your gear due to didymo in both those rivers
There is two little general stores in the area of the Savage. 1 up on New Germany road and another down on the road that runs along the lake (savage river road maybe?). No restaurants around that I'm aware of. Sometimes we drive down to Westernport where I think there is a McDonalds and Subway, maybe another small restaurant.
