This trip is perfect for both expereinced and novice anglers in the late summer and fall. Once the waters of the Upper Potomac calm a bit and water clarity improves, I encourage my customers to go smallmouth fishing and head towards some of the boat ramps on the Upper Potomac.  The smallmouth bite remains hot through the remainder of the summer into the fall with favorable river conditions. We’ll launch and look for holes and boulders along the river that hold fish.  We can adjust to whichever boat ramp is most convenient for you.

In the spring and early summer, the Occoquan River and Belmont Bay area of the tidal Potomac are full of shad, striper, largemouth, and huge catfish. We’ll launch from one of the ramps along the Occoquan and spend the day fishing between the base of the rocks and the mouth of Belmont Bay. The shad arrive in March as the water starts to warm, and fishing remains hot through the spring bass spawn and into the early summer.
