The Potomac River Smallmouth Club (PRSC) is the Washington D.C. Capital Area’s leading river fishing and conservation organization. We promote catch and release angling for smallmouth bass, support conservation organizations and agencies, publish a monthly newsletter, present monthly programs with guest speakers, and organize frequent river trips for our members. While we are principally focused on smallmouth bass fishing in the Potomac River watershed, we also sponsor trips to other destinations such as the Shenandoah, James, New, Cacapon and Susquehanna.

Shallow Water Fishing Adventures is a complete guide service, however there are some things that you will need to bring with you. We recommend that you bring the following:
A Camera - The Potomac River is very scenic and historic. Expect to see bald eagles and historical landmarks up and down the river. We can take a picture of your fish, and post it on our web site.
Sun Block - The sun can be intense on the water. Be sure to use the appropriate SPF for your skin tone.
Polarized Sunglasses - Eyewear protects from the sun and from the wind while we are underway!
Attire - It's always a good idea to wear loose fitting comfortable clothing. Call for weather conditions. A hat is a must…glare and warmth.
Your own Rod or Reels - We do provide spinning and bait casters; however, if you would like to bring your own rods, or just your reel, and use our rods, that would be fine. You are responsible for lost and/ or broken rods and reels.
Food and Beverages- We DO NOT provide food or beverages. Bring your own....small soft sided coolers are best...freezing bottles of water will save space and replace the need for ice...Please DO NOT bring alcohol.

Shallow Water Fishing Adventures provides a VIP pick up and drop off service from the boat ramp. Please see the hotels page for details.

Girl Scouts Nation's Capital, Troop 3036, had a great time fishing with Jeff Greene from Shallow Water Fishing Adventures! We learned how to put a worm on a hook, cast our lines, catch some fish, and then released them. The girls had a blast with a fabulous instructor, and no one was ready to leave when their parents came to pick them up! Thank you Shallow Water Fishing Adventures for giving the girls such a positive outdoors experience!


*There are no refunds on deposits. The only way a refund can be given is if there is severe weather that does not allow for safe conditions. We will fish rain or shine. Call Shallow Water Fishing Adventures fishing guide service today.

While concentrating our efforts on the improvement of smallmouth bass fishing in the region’s rivers, PRSC supports the preservation of fish habitat and the wise management of all river gamefish species. The Club also emphasizes knowledge of safe boating and wading skills as central to an enjoyable river experience. PRSC participates in various community sporting activities.


PRSC also works closely with state and federal agencies, other membership organizations and various businesses on matters of common interest.
The club meets the last Wednesday of every month except December when there is no meeting. Meetings are typically at 7:30 at the McLean Governmental Center, however check the Club Calendar for different times and locations depending on activities.
