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
Our June meeitng will be devoted to Boat Night. For the third year, the event will be held at Riverbend Park in Great Falls, VA, starting at 6:00 PM. This year's event will feature every type of boat used for river smallmouth fishing, from jet boats to pontoons, canoes and kayaks. This is a great opportunity to see a variety of different boats, see how they are outfitted and talk to the owners. This months's event starts at 6:00 and we'll be grilling hamburgers, so come hungry! There is typically some side activity such as fly casting instruction, etc. And feel free to fish the area before, during and after ... we will be just right next to the boat launch.
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!
