Urban Bass Fishing in Washington, DC – Lower Potomac River

October 23, 2017 244 No Comments


One of my subs invited me to fish the Tidal Potomac River. When he told me about the spot, I was surprised to hear that he was catching some decent fish from such an urban location. A lot of water, not much structure/cover, and limited to the bank. Despite these conditions, we caught some solid largies, and I saw a variety of other species present including snakeheads, gar, carp, and more!
