Planning a Violet's Lock Trip Friday PM

Usually, you canoe down a mile or so of fantastic scenery and fishing, go to shore, pull your boat up to the canal and paddle back.
PROBLEM- Canal has no water in it now.
We will only fish the upper areas, my shoulder is shot, I can't do what I did as a Youth - then we will pull the canoe back up over the initial rubble, then paddle home.
Done it dozens of times.

I'm guessing 5 PM at Violette's. Friday 7/5 - I am in the long Yellow OldTown Tripper. Canoes and kayaks only. Bait I use -
Gary Yamamoto D/T in pumpkin or green.
I have done this run for 30 years..... You do need a fishing license and Life Preserver.
I start by going over the initial scree and park my canoe at the end by hanging up on rocks on purpose. I do this always here. I start casting. You have not really stirred up the hole... YET.
Give this 10 minutes at least. Drop into the hole and anchor and stay 1/2 hour.
Patience. These first holes are pretty large at level 3.4.

So the issues are -
How to drop over that initial scree - (I am in the back, I get out and manhandle the canoe over, then hop in. Never had a problem. If the water is really low, you both get out and carry.
If it's high, I do not have to get out.)

FROM THEN ON, it is safe technical boating.
AND Technical Fishing.

I was out there 2 Sundays ago, put in at the Seneca Creek boat landing. The police were out telling those on the water to stay over on the MD side of the river, Trump was playing golf that day at his course on the VA side.

Tell the police it's all the Maryland side.

Traditional high-water mark on opposite shore if MD owns the river (which they do with the Potomac). In short, as high as the water can get on the opposite bank before it becomes "Flood Stage" on the USGS gauges. It's case law and precedence has been set.

I would tell them to pound sand if I wanted to fish on that side.
WTF is going on? Me in a canoe with a friend are a danger? How unrealistic is this? For anyone who has been there,
you know what I am saying. I really couldn't charge up the riverbank, Paddle in hand, to ....
I would be pissed. WAY out of hand.
DID THEY CLEAN UP THE LOGS FROM THE TREES THEY ILLEGALLY CUT?????
AT TRUMP NATIONAL?????

I like Trump, not the horseshit .

If in a Kayak or Canoe, you need a Whistle as well.
I didn't know that, until DNR pulled me and friends over in my canoe.
The Officer GAVE ME and every other 'offender' a whistle, and only a warning.
Over Memorial Day, VERY COOL Officer!
I'm glad I know the law. How could we ever know that? Do they send you the fishing rules when you buy your license?
AN un - registered canoe - how are you to be informed about the regs?
