I have fished out of my 14' canoe many times in the upper Potomac. 

I like to paddle, but if I'm going out solo for an all-day fishing marathon, I attach a 30# MinnKota motor on a home-made mount, and it is plenty to move me around -- usually never move off of Speed 2.

As for safety, if the gauge at Point of Rocks is above 2-3' or so, it's NOT safe for a small boat though.

Here is a link to the official "safe water levels" site for the Potomac: dnr.state.md.us/boating/pdfs/upperpotomac.pdf
