Shallow Water Fishing Adventures

Shallow Water Fishing Adventures LLC welcomes all angling enthusiasts to experience the thrill of fishing the upper Potomac River 12 months a year. This is the most historic river on the East Coast and offers the ideal opportunity to have a fun and action-packed experience with one of the best Smallmouth Bass guides in the state of Maryland. Pick your day and join Captain Jeff Greene in Poolesville for a memorable trip to the Potomac River!

Your boat for the day will be a 17’ Sea Ark bass boat that can accommodate 2 anglers. It runs on a 60 HP Mercury and uses modern GPS and radar technology to keep you on the right course all the time. There’s also a livewell to provide you with live bait.

You and your guide will be chasing Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Crappie, as well as Catfish. To reel in your catch, you can use light tackle trolling, spinning, and fly fishing. You can choose if you’ll keep or release your catch. Kids are welcome to come aboard, so feel free to bring them as well. Just make sure to remember that smoking isn’t allowed during the trip.

Captain Jeff will take care of the rods, reels, tackle, as well as lures. You bring your fishing licenses and the snacks and drinks of your preference.

The river is very clear and in the high 60’s. We have found success with suspending jerkbaits. Try shoreline areas with large rocks and wood. Give these areas time, be patient. Jerkbaits catch big smallmouth bass.

We are experiencing low water conditions. Water temperatures are in the high 60’s. The water is stained but clearing fast. All of our fish are being caught on topwater lures and 3 inch stickbaits. The further into October we get the cooler the water will get and the better the fishing should get.
Heavy rain, can equal great fishing.

We had a substantial rise on the upper Potomac River this week. The water was heavily stained and in the low 60’s. We were using 3 inch black stick baits on a 1/16 oz jig-head. We fished any hard structure we could find that had heavy current right in front of it.
