    Default River Condition

    Haven't been on River yet this year, can anyone tell me if grass is up? Is spawn about over for bass? Water temps around Belmont Bay?

    Just read a weekly report from a river guide who said the river is muddy and grass is very sparse.

    Grass is very sparse. Where there is some...it's only about 6" high. Was heavily stained on main river Quantico to Occoquan to Mattowoman last week. Temps are 70* and rising. Spawn is about done.

    Thanks! Is the grass being sparse typical for the time of year or is it a bad year for grass on the Potomac?

    I think it's gonna be another bad year for grass. All the rain making muddy water won't let Sun light through to stimulate growth.
