Founded in 1988, the Potomac River Smallmouth Club (PRSC - is the Washington D.C. Capital Area's leading river fishing and conservation organization. With 100+ current members, we promote catch and release angling for smallmouth bass, support conservation organizations and agencies, publish a monthly newsletter, present monthly programs with guest speakers, and provide the contacts required members to connect with each other for fishing trips

While we are principally focused on smallmouth bass fishing in the Potomac River watershed, we pay attention to other destinations such as the Shenandoah, James, New, Cacapon and Susquehanna.
