Hello all...this is my first post and I'm curious if anyone has any good recommendations for fun outdoors activities (other than the traditional DC tourist type activities). I'm from the West and enjoy going fishing and shooting my shotgun. The big city life is a little daunting but I think I can manage as long as I have some time outdoors. Any suggestions?

Default Fishing

A good starting point would be the Middleburg Fishing Show in Middleburg, VA this Sunday, Feb.11. At the community center on Rt. 50 from about 11:00 - 4:00. Among other programs there will be a presentation on trout fishing spots in the N. Va. mountains. Also a good place to meet professional guides and get info on all types of fishing, from bass in the Shenandoah River to striper fishing in the Chesapeake Bay.

NOVA is not necessarily big city live. In fact some is very rural. It depends on where you are. But if you wanna get out, I reccomend western Loudoun County.

There is a lot of coon huntin' out that way. On the Potomac river they have parks I think where people can go fishing. Algonkian National Park and a few others.
