Have you ever looked down into water in an unlikely urban setting and thought, "I'd bet there's some decent fish down there"? Such a spot had been resurfacing in my fishing day dreams for years: Rock Creek, a tributary of the tidal Potomac in our nations capital.
Sure, most bass anglers know that the Potomac is a tremendous largemouth and smallmouth fishery. It hosts countless tournaments, almost year 'round. But I wasn't thinking about somewhere a bass boat can open it up and go 70 miles per hour in a run and gun race to catch your five best. I had been eyeing up something that could be hopped across a half mile upstream from it's mouth. What I found was an almost unknown oasis of multispecies mayhem hiding beneath the urban tangle of elevated freeways, office buildings and national monuments.
Hope you enjoy the video. Leave a comment with one of you favorite urban fishing spots.
