Among Upper Potomac Islands
The big ones like Nolands are somewhat permanent while the tiny ones come and go. The above photo is facing upriver, and I believe Nolands is on the right.
Fishing today was typical: two smallmouth and many bream in three hours, all on the surface. I spent too much time futilely using a weedless wooly bugger I tied yesterday when the fish clearly were only interested in feeding on top. As on the last trip, a slider type fly was very effective. Saw a bald eagle. River lever was 1.98 at Point of Rocks and 3.00 at Little Falls.
