Trip Details

This trip is perfect for both experienced and novice anglers in the late summer and fall. Once the waters of the Upper Potomac calm a bit and water clarity improves, I encourage my customers to go smallmouth fishing and head towards some of the boat ramps on the Upper Potomac. The smallmouth bite remains hot through the remainder of the summer into the fall with favorable river conditions. We’ll launch and look for holes and boulders along the river that hold fish. We can adjust to whichever boat ramp is most convenient for you.

Full Day – Tidal Potomac
Booked Capt. Rich and Osprey Fishing as a birthday present for my daughter and me. We’re both inexperienced anglers and I wanted her to be able to pull in some fish. Man Capt. Rich was able to put us right on top of the fish and within minutes of our first cast my daughter was reeling in her first fish, and second and third etc. The trip far exceeded my expectations and my daughter has not stopped talking about it. We will be booking again with Capt. Rich and Osprey Fishing.

Full Day Trip – Upper Potomac
I’ve been on a lot of private and party fishing trips and Captain Rich was by far the best out there. If you want an experience to learn how to fish, where to fish, how everything works, and how to use it this is the trip for you. He was super knowledgeable, friendly, and determined for us to catch more and more fish. We did catch and release but we must have pulled up 15 or so fish yesterday, 3 types of Catfish, Snakehead, Perch, and LM Bass. Thanks for a great day out!
