I Fish the tidal Potomac a lot with my Bass Boat Mallows bay is reachable with a Bass Boat to the back side on the front where the majority of wrecks are most of us stay away from it because of the hidden hazards just below the surface of the water.
Additionally with the boat traffic from the main river and the large pleasure turds that make 4' Wakes behind them most of us stay away from that area as you never know when you will be slammed down on top of a piece of rusty steel or a old wooden or junk boat.
It's a very fishy area just very dangerous if you are new or unsure of where to go within it.
If you care to run around on the river at 50 mph sometime drop me a PM and I'll take you out to a few favorite spots for some tidal Bucket mouths.
A Virginia license is good pretty much everywhere on the Potomac and VA/MD tributaries as outlined in turtle135's post.
Most Bass Boats can Run the majority of the Matt, Pohick, Quantico Creek, Chic, most any creek except for the Chopowamsic as Quantico has a restricted area on the channel and area around the MCAF.
A neat possibility would be to get access via Quantco to Chopawamsic creek which Quantico has a new ramp built on then you would have no Bass Boat traffic at all to contend with. the Chop hold very nice large Bass and Snakeheads as well.
