    Default Re: MD Bass fishing on the Potomac?

    Regulations do change, and I moved from MD in 2015 so haven't really kept up with the regs. there, but I don't recall ever reading any reg that stated a PDF was required for wading in MD. It is certainly advisable on waters such as the upper Potomac.

    Red Owl, you are absolutely correct about those ledges, they're not flat and are often at steep angles that make wading hazardous. The current in that section of the Potomac under normal conditions is not "raging", but can be strong enough to be dangerous if a person falls and is not wearing a PDF.

    When there's been a lot of rain or snow run off, and the river gets high & muddy, yes it can at be described as raging, and anyone who attempts to wade it under those conditions would be trying to commit suicide.
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!
