Western MD Smallmouth
Location: Upper Potomac
This smallmouth was caught in the Potomac River near the Allegany Fairgrounds on Sunday November 17. I caught 12 just like the photo in about two hours. The Potomac River from Westerport to Cumberland is some of the best smallmouth fishing in the country. And if you fish it please catch and release because itís the right thing to do plus it's the law on that part of the river!!!!! I remember when that part of the river was dead due to factory pollution. Thank you Maryland DNR for fixing that part of the Potomac and creating one of the best stretches of smallmouth fishing in the country!!!! GREAT JOB!!!!
