  Subject: Tidal Potomac River, Maryland

Submitted by Reel Bass Adventures

Date Fished: 7/26/2011
Water Temperature: 89
Water Clarity: 2-3 feet

Water temperatures are in the high 80ís and bass activity has slowed accordingly. We recommend getting on the water at the crack of dawn when you will experience at least two good hours of top water action. We start with a buzz bait to locate active bass and then switch to a popper, which has been catching more bass for us than the buzz. As the sun gets on the water the top water bite slows dramatically. We then switch to unweighted stick worms to collect a few more bass. Once the sun is hard on the water we start pattern hopping. Main river rock piles, old pilings, bridge pilings and downed wood are all fished with varying results. A chatter bait worked over wood and around pilings will produce bass as will a jig and craw combo. For numbers of bass, a jig worm or shaky head worked over the drops in the creeks will produce a fair number of bass although most are small. Fishing main river grass flats in three to four feet of water with a stick worm rigged weedless with a very light sinker does fairly well for larger bass.
