Potomac River Fishing

You can find some of West Virginia’s best smallmouth bass fishing in the southern branch of the Potomac River. Anglers fishing a full day here can expect to bag up to 100 smallmouth bass. The 18+ convenient access points along the shore in the southern part of the river make it easy to access. When fishing here, you can also target catfish, perch, striped bass, and largemouth bass. Anglers can enjoy fishing the Potomac River by boat or from the shore. Be prepared to carry a large catch back home after a good day of fishing here.
