    so, it is tight, I parked on the canal side and walked it over

    Don't know about the Potomac but the Susky can't be good.

    Susky is in spill conditions right now, as of this posting no spill gates open but running 7 small and 4 large units. Lots of water moving probably going to turn the whole area muddy. Its a shame the bite was just starting up, hoping it will clear up soon.

    That area of the Potomac is about 1 inch visibility right now and moving swiftly.

    This afternoon I went to the tidal Potomac in DC at Chain Bridge. It was windy so I brought the spinning rod. I used the bottom jig in that top photo.
    I ended up catching 2 of these stupid shad. I hate them. They are dumb and don’t really fight much and they have a stupid little mouth.
    Schools of that type of stupid shad are in the big eddies there. You can see them moving around and breaking the surface every once in a while.
    The 2 that I caught both ate my jig with their stupid mouth. Just me and spanish speaking guys or asian speaking guys. Didn’t see anyone catching anything much.
    Water was brown and moving pretty good after yesterday’s storm.
