Evan Voss and Ariana Stanley of Hagerstown took to the water Wednesday as the heat returned to Washington County. Voss, 20, was wading and fishing in the Potomac River east of Power Plant Dam near Williamsport. “It's nice and cool, it keeps you out of the heat, and it's fun,” he said. “When it's warm here at night, I can night fish.” Stanley, 22, was not catching anything, though, so she sat in a chair by the water to get some sun. “I like fishing, but not today,” she said.
