Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, bluegill, green sunfish and striped bass at Rock Creek in Washington DC.
Rock Creek, DC

Meandering through Rock Creek Park, Rock Creek is located from the far-upper corner of the district running to the southwestern corner where it flows into the Potomac River. This is an ideal spot to fish from the bank and teach youngsters the joy of fishing. There are numerous access points along the approximately 10 miles of the DC portion of the creek. No boat motors are allowed so canoes and kayaks are a popular choice here. Water levels can dictate the wisdom of using watercraft, as it is only practical at higher levels. It is a pleasure to walk the shore and fish for bass, catfish, sunfish and an occasional striped bass. Light tackle and small lures, or live bait, work best.
