Shallow Water Fishing Adventures

Join professional fishing guide Jeff Greene and Shallow Water Fishing Adventures Guide Service for an exciting freshwater adventure on the Potomac River, Maryland. Whether you’re an experienced angler or someone starting out, Jeff will make sure you get a trip that’s tailored to your individual needs and wants.

His boat is a 17’ Sea Ark aluminum fishing boat that’s powered by a single Mercury engine. She’s equipped with all the necessary safety gear and navigation electronics to make sure you’re on the fish at all times. She’s nimble enough to navigate very narrow waters, and has enough room aboard for up to 2 prospective anglers.

There’s a lot to do on the Potomac River, so you’re free to choose what to focus on. The main targets in these waters are trophy Smallmouth Bass, Channel Catfish, and Largemouth Bass. Jeff is on the water during the entire year, meaning that pretty much any time is a good time to be fishing in these parts.

Jeff will supply all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle for your trip. You’ll need to have a valid Maryland freshwater fishing license with you, and feel free to bring some drinks or snacks if you like. Come on down with your loved ones, and get ready to make some fishing memories together.

Your fishing guide Jeff Greene first started guiding because he really liked teaching people how to fish. He is very passionate about seeing people catch the biggest bass or catfish they have ever seen. Throughout the years, Jeff's favorite fish to catch has been and still is the quick and agile Smallmouth Bass.
