advice needed on Potomac river smallmouth fishing

Recommended Posts

hello. i was wondering what would be a good place to drop in a kayak or canoe for a day's smallmouth fishing trip. i usually canoe/camp the shenandoah but id like to find a nice spot closer to home for day trips.

thanks in advance

             My buddies have been killing them out of Algonkian Park. They are catching them on the Case Jack's Worm in a color called Natural. Also catching them on what looks like a large beetle spin set up with a green pumpkin grub and the tail dipped in chrt dye.

Hey Rob, have your buds been getting anything of size? Ernie from Ashburn has been on the river quite a bit lately and getting mostly little dinks down here. He's gotten some better fish N of Point of Rocks.

I'm looking to do the river one morning next week.

      They had mentioned a Aqua duct and that is where it all happened. Several over 2lbs. I'll ask more questions when I get home. The Jack's Worm by Case was the key.

thanks for the replies.

is there a 10 or 15 mile stretch that is canoe friendly (no major rapids) in the upper potomac? id be parking a car where we drop in and another where we take out.

thanks

You can take the Ferry across the river at White's Ferry and there's a put in there. It's about 11 miles down river to Algonkian Regional Park. It's a calm stretch of river and smallmouths throughout.
