Now in our 25th year!
Founded in 1988 and now in its 25th year, the Potomac River Smallmouth Club (PRSC) is the Washington D.C. 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 river trips for our members. ...more
Cross one off the bucket list!
Jack Cook has been fishing the Potomac River for over 60 years. He has been a member of PRSC continuously since 1988—longer than anyone else. He mentored many current and former Club members in various aspects of fishing and conservation, some of whom have gone on to have a major impact in protecting our resources. Jack has caught numerous smallmouth over 20 inches, but when speaking at a recent club meeting he remarked that it was still on his “bucket list” to catch one over 5 lbs. Well, on a trip on May 2nd that his guide L.E. Rhodes of Hatchmatcher Guide Service described as “epic,” Jack caught not one, but two that surpassed that benchmark. The largest was 22 inches and 5.8 lbs! Congratulations Jack!
Swap Meet and Experts Night
At our May 29th meeting, we will start with a swap meet where members in good standing can bring in their excess gear to sell. Have too much stuff? Not the right stuff for you? This is your opportunity to unload it.
Following the swap meet and normal club business, we are doing a repeat of "experts night" during members share their knowledge about rivers, lures, techniques, gear, etc., through informal discussions and demonstrations. Dan Grulke, a guide with Ken Penrod's Life Outdoors Unlimited and an expert rodmaker will be demonstrating rod building and repair (feel free to bring any rods with broken tips!).
