Anybody know where I can get a depth chart/map for the Potomac?

For a traditional fishing paper map, GMCO makes them and you can buy at BPS in Hanover (other places too and online I'm sure)

 

NOAA charts 12288 and 12289 also cover the bass fishing section of the Potomac (DC to 301 bridge).

Navionics also has the Potomac on their online chart viewer.

Rich, check with some local tackle shops near the ramps you use for the Potomac (if any are around) and they can let you know if there are other maps available other than the GMCO series.

 

GMCO is a great map but you have to remember one important thing: due to the Potomac tides the depth can and will change after the maps are published.

 

So even though you can see the major depths just remember that the five foot depth at high tide may be down to two feet when you arrive to fish.

 

Make plans to drive down to the Richmond Fishing Expo in Doswell in January and you can speak with the GMCO guy and Potomac guides. I think you will like the show.
