Weekly Fishing Report: + September Outlook

The Muddiest Year


The Potomac has had more high muddy water this year than ever before.

Rain continues with thunderstorms on Monday and Tuesday. Sun for the rest of the week. Highs around 80 with lows in the mid 60s. Water temperature around 70. Water clarity will improve and tide cycles are close to normal 

Last week tides were 3-5 feet higher than normal. This pushed fish well into unreachable areas. This week, morning low tides will position fish at the deeper ends of docks, the ends of lay downs, drops and edges, as well as any grass patches.

FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor



Fishing Report - September 14, 2018

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - Fletcher's Boathouse is closed for rentals due to high water. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are being caught along the Virginia bank above Key Bridge. Crankbaits, spinnerbaits and live crayfish are the best producers. Crappie are schooling up, taking small minnows and tiny jigs in Fletcher's Cove and around the docks in Washington Channel and Washington Sailing Marina. Catfish are plentiful, taking clam snouts, nightcrawlers and cut bait. Main river bridge pilings and other submerged cover are holding good bass. Some rocky points and shorelines are also attracting bass. Crankbaits, spinnerbaits and plastic baits are the preferred baits.

FISHING REPORT September 12, 2018

Reports from the Rappahannock River and other lakes were not contributed due to the potential of condition changes from the expected hurricane.

Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

RAPPAHANNOCK RIVER: Chris Hicks reports the heat has forced anglers to fish at night. Big catfish are biting, but insist on fresh bait like bream. Anglers are also finding small white perch in the river to use as catfish bait. Soft plastics also work, and corks and bobbers are effective near lily pads.

POTOMAC RIVER: Reel Bass Adventures reports sporadic bass fishingt. Grass flats still are the primary producers when worked with small top water poppers or twitching a floating worm.

Saltwater-Updated: September 14, 2018

(Next Update: September 21, 2018) 

Saltwater- There were some outstanding catches of Cobia made earlier this week, and over the weekend. However, with Florence spinning out in the Atlantic, and getting close to shore, things may get tricky this weekend. Buckroe Pier closed down on Wed. due to the approaching storm 

Freshwater-27 lbs won a 2 day tournament out of Hopewell this past weekend. Kevin Gregory and Travis Heath were the winners. These weights are the average of what's been winning on bodies of water in our area. The Chickahominy is always an option for big Bass, but total weights have been down a little there also.

The 2018 Veterans Heritage Fund Wounded Warriors Fall Bass Classic is being held in Sept 29, 2018.

We are in need of boat captains to take one or possibly two of our Veterans out fishing for a day and a little fun competition. I have attended this event for many years and look forward to it every year.

If you are available to volunteer as a boat captain, please get in touch with Brian Green at 540-847-3379.

You can also get in touch with Bob Critcher and he can pass your info along to Brian.
