    Hi everyone! I am new to the forum. Right now Am very irritating because I have not been out fishing for a couple of months. Am looking for any public pier or access point on the Potomac River below the Woodrow Wilson Memorial Bridge (Pay Parking fee is fine) that is open during night hours. For the last 6 years I have been catfishing by Riley Lock Road in the upper Potomac near Poolesville. Now, I am ready to try some new locations. I also done some fishing in D.C especially at Hains Point Park. but I have been back there for the last 3 years because of the fish consumption high mercury in catfish and carps. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't mean to ask anyone for their secret or hot fishing spot. Harper Ferry, Edward Ferry Rd, and Riley Lock will my last resort. I have MD tidal and nontidal fishing license. Thanks All, Am looking forward to fish in February.

    You need to go up river a little more this time of the year to catch channel cats as far as below the ww bridge fort washington park would be a good place to start rileys lock has some good fishing just not this time off the year
