There's no way to hide it. March is here, and even if day and night temperatures still can be on the cold side, the numbers of fish species that local and distant anglers now go after are increasing daily.
Thousands of automobiles roll past it every day, their occupants — some could be fishermen from other locales - blissfully unaware that the large, rock-strewn cove known as the Spoils might very well be the most consistently productive cold-weather fishing spot on the upper tidal Potomac River. It's but a stone's throw from the I-295 exit lanes that take motorists from Maryland across the Wilson Bridge into Virginia.
For anglers who live in the nation's capital and the surrounding suburban counties of Maryland and Virginia, things are about to break wide open even though the weather hasn't been very cooperative.
