Potomac River — Reports show the striped bass bite is sporadic in our area but the word is the further downriver you go, the better the bite. Try sassy shads, large cranks or bucktails. Fish the edges or bottom.
This is the time of year large blue catfish can be caught. Again, fish the ledges and edges with fresh cut shad or eels. Upriver areas are best.

Aqua Land in Maryland reports angler continuing to catch stripers on RatLTrap lures near the Power Plant. In other locations around the facility, anglers are taking cutbait out to entice striped bass and are more often catching catfish.
The bass action in upriver creeks is decent, but a moving tide is the key and fishing the remaining weedline is the best way to catch bass. Look for bass to transition to hard structure soon. White perch are still biting. Find them on creek channel edges with live creek minnows.

Upriver, the bass action is good with crawdad colors near weedlines in the creeks. Fish with an erratic retrieve. Other local reports tell of good striper action downriver to the mouth along edges by trolling bucktails, large crankbaits and sassy shads.
