Float trips can be booked whenever a guide and boat are available. A booking at least two weeks in advance is recommended, but don't hesitate to call on a short notice. There may still be openings available.
Potomac float trip fees are $500 per boat, with 2 anglers to a boat. A deposit of $250 is necessary to reserve a float trip date. The remaining balance must be paid a week before the trip date. As anglers have different styles and skill levels, we do not pair up single anglers. Please find your own fishing companion or splurge a little and have the whole boat and guide to yourself.
Upon receipt of your trip deposit, a confirmation letter will be mailed to you. It will include a map showing where to meet, recommendations on tackle and clothing, important phone numbers, and the time and date of your trip. Potomac float trips meet at 8 a.m. at the boat ramp under the Rt 17 bridge in Brunswick, MD.
If the river is unfishable on the date of your trip due to high discolored water or flooding, we will either reschedule your trip on a day convenient for you or refund your money.
If you are unable to fish on your scheduled day, we will gladly reschedule your trip or refund your money provided that you contact us 7 or more days before the date of your trip. Within a week of the trip, we are unable to provide a rescheduling or refund. If you find yourself in this situation, we recommend that you give or resell the trip to someone else.
