In many areas, the Potomac is frozen shore to shore. Boat ramps are frozen solid. This week, sort through tackle and get mentally prepared for the weeks to follow after the ice melts.
Cold Snap! Be careful, as icy ramps will make the Potomac treacherous. Light line and small baits will be on the limited menu.
It was raw cold last week and most ramps were unusable, but this week brings a bit of sunlight at the end of the fishing tunnel!
Early in the week, ramps might be frozen. Exercise care if you venture out! Water temperatures should remain in the upper 30s.
