Short Take: Approximately 50 miles fishable for bass; tidal influence, hydrilla, shallow underwater cover, large tributaries. Unless they happen to be bass fishermen, tourists driving across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge (Interstate 95) just south of Washington, D.C. seldom realize that when they look down at the Potomac River they’re seeing one of the finest bass fisheries in eastern America. Anglers who solve the twin puzzles of tidal influence and hydrilla usually have a busy day on the water. The Potomac is an ever-changing fishery, however, and while some areas do remain consistently productive year after year, others do not. That’s because hydrilla covers much of the Potomac’s shallow water areas, and its growth is dependent on water flow. Heavy saltwater intrusion from Chesapeake Bay or high, muddy water from north of Washington will totally change the hydrilla growth pattern each year. Large beds of the vegetation that are present one year may be completely gone the next. Primary Species: Largemouth and striped bass.
