One the MD side of the river, you can launch at Smallwood, Marshall Hall or Ft. Washington Marina.
In Va. you have, from north to south, National Airport (Gravelly Point), Belle Haven (lousy ramp), Pohick Bay, Leesylvania State Park among a few others.
The Potomac is an outstanding fishery and we are lucky to have it. PM me if you need more detailed info.
I'd definitely recommend going out at Leesylvania or Gravelly Point. You're right the Belle Haven ramp really sucks, even for putting in a wave runner.
I work at NSWC Indian Head so wave when you cruise by
I'll have to post up some pics of the Rockfish my dad pulls in. He's got a commercial license now so he can pretty much catch as many as he wants.
