Come experience Big-River fishing! The Potomac River at Dam #5 is shallow, warm, wide and full of bass. We’ll park next to the C&O Canal on Dam #5 Road south of Clear Spring, MD (Exit 18 off I 70). Bring your 6 WT rod if you have it, and some poppers and other bass specials, and join us for an evening outing. Wet wading is the order of the day. Bring a picnic supper AND A FLASHLIGHT Headlamp so you can find your way back to the car after dark. This outing depends on the water temperature and levels. If it’s too warm the fish don’t bite! If it’s too high we can’t wade. We’ll let you know several days before whether it’s on or not, so sign up to get the word! Optional overnight options exist at the Holiday Inn in Clear Spring. For insurance purposes, all non-members must register as a CWA member-for-a-day at this event for a fee of $10.
