Copperhead and Timber Rattler.
It is debated whether there could be Cottonmouths and Eastern Massausaga (sp?) naturally occurring in Maryland.

Rat snakes are not venomous
No on Coral Snakes.
As posted above, Cottonmouths are debated whether they inhabit Southern Maryland.

Must have been about 7 years but it was a really wet spring me and a friend were fishing the monocacy river. It was much higher than usual and I guess that caused the copperheads to abandon their typical homes, anyway we we had the boat in close to shore and darn near ended up with a 5' copperhead in the boat with us. Wasn't cool!

Correct.

Officially, and I believe its accurate, according to DNR, no Cottonmouths in Maryland, or DC:

"Only two of the twenty seven kinds of snakes inhabiting Maryland are venomous: the copperhead and timber rattlesnake."http://dnr2.maryland.gov/wildlife/Pages/plants_wildlife/vsnakes.aspx
