Fall Fishing in Harpers Ferry. WVA

Date: 05 October 2014

Objective: A fun day on the Potomac River for Veterans from the Martinsburg VA Hospital Community Living Center and GOALS Program.

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Location: Potomac Terrace Development, Harper's Ferry, WVA

Event: The day will include spin casting and fly fishing from pontoon boats provided by
neighbors in the Potomac Terrace development. Small and large mouth bass,
tiger muskie, bluegill, and catfish can be found on this part of the Potomac
in spring, so there will be plenty of fish to catch! The location is across

can relax and enjoy the scenery. A great lunch will be provided by The Q
Company of Leesburg, VA, serving delicious barbecue.
