While fishing with Grand Ole Potomac FLy Fishing Guides you will need the appropriate licensure.

1.   When fishing the annual spring SHAD RUN below the Great Falls in the tidal region of Washington DC you will need a Washington DC fishing license. For 2017 the fee for a resident of Washington DC is $10. For a non-resident (even thought one of the primary access points to the fishing grounds is in Maryland) license the fee is $13 for an annual permit and $6.50 for a 4 day permit.


2.   For fishing above the Great Falls for summer floats or wading trips you will need a Virginia or Maryland Resident or non-resident license if from Washington DC or other areas outside of VA/MD. In addition should our exploration lead us to West Virginia or for Trout we will need licensure for those species and areas as well.
