Anglers don't have to travel outside of D.C. proper to have a great fishing experience. Anacostia Park is one of D.C.'s largest recreation areas, spanning more than 1,200 acres. The river here is an excellent spot for catch-and-release fishing. Fletcher’s Cove, quite a popular destination for water-enthusiasts, provides access to the Potomac River as well as the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. Family friendly activities are going on throughout the entire fishing season so there is something for everyone.
