Surviving Muddy Water
June 10, 2018


Last week’s challenge was muddy water AND high water. This week tides will get back to acceptable. Water should warm a bit after slipping to 70 last week. 

Showers and a cool start to begin the week, around 70. Warming to the mid 80s and another chance of showers on Thursday before cooling a bit into the weekend. Water will slowly warm to mid 70.

To fish high morning tides, go to inside grass edges and cast bladed jigs with Mann’s 3” HardNose Mullets on Gamma EDGE 12-14 pound fluorocarbon line




FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor

Fishing Report - June 15, 2018

OVERVIEW - Most rivers are still high and muddy, while lakes are stained. With more stable, hot weather predicted for the coming week, the mud should be dropping out and water clearing and getting warmer.

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - Very few stripers, some white perch and lots of catfish are available at Fletcher's Boat House. High and swift water is still the norm here. The War College Wall in Washington Channel is giving up some bass for anglers using buzzbaits early and late in the day, and Berkley Power Worms when the sun is up. Main river grass, where found, is also giving up bass to anglers using buzzbaits and Power Worms. Bridge pilings are holding bass, along with big blue catfish. Catfish are available on flats adjacent to the channel on clam snouts, cut bait and cut crab. Columbia Island Lagoon is showing bass on dock pilings.

BASS- The bass have finally made their push to the shallows and lots of them are spawning. By the end of the month, look for the best top water action of the season to start. Look for f8sh in the emerging willow grass, Dave's Tournament Tackle Tiger Shad Spinnerbaits and Chatterbaits (bladed jigs) will produce fish throughout the month.

As the shore line grass start to green up, it will get tougher to get moving baits through it, this is when pitching and flipping will come into play.

May is the month that the shad and herring spawn, look foir them on shallow rocky points & rip rap banks. Walking top water baits like the Evergreen Custom Top Water Bait, Heddon Zara Spook and Spook Jr are great baits to imitate spawning baitfish. Soft jerkbaits are another great imitation of these spawning morsals.

CRAPPIE- Early in the month the Crappie will still be spawning, as we get to the middle of the month, they will start to push back out to deeper water for the summer. Willow grass, beaver huts, boat docks and sea walls will be holding fish during the spawn.

Fish a small minnow rigged under a slip bobber with minimal weight (just enough to keep minnow in place) or an abundance of artificial baits. Mt favorite is a 2" Big Bite Lures Curly Tail Grub rigged on a Mizmo 1/16oz jighead in Tractor Green, Green Weenie, Back/Blue Chart Tail and Wally World.


STRIPER- The Striper have been in the uplake area for quite some time and are now pushing their way back down tro mid lake.

Early in the morning, look for them to be chasing baitfish to the surface. Broken Back Redfins are my favorite bait to catch them on. Once the feed is over, a four inch swimbait, rigged on a 1/4oz jig head will continue to catch them.

LAKE LEVEL- FULL POOL

WATER TEMPS & CLARITY
DIKE 3- 62-64 Degrees CLEAR
DOWN LAKE- 61-64 Degrees CLEAR
MID LAKE- 60-63 Degrees SLIGHT STAIN
UP LAKE-60-65 HEAVY STAIN

Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star FISHING REPORT June 13, 2018


RAPPAHANNOCK RIVER: Chris Hicks reports the river is finally starting to clear after weeks of rain that has muddied the water and kept anglers off the river. He expects good conditions by the weekend. Now is the time to catch big catfish before they retreat to their beds

POTOMAC RIVER: Reel Bass Adventures reports bass action is slow but consistent. Early morning top water action can be had along pad fields by using buzz baits or poppers. Inside edges of grass beds hold good bass that like chatter baits, swim jigs and nine inch plastic worms. As the tide falls, move to the center of grass beds and pitch or flip plastic creature baits or jig-and-craw combos.

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – June 13, 2018

Posted on June 13, 2018 by Capt. Art

Capt. Art Conway of Conway’s River Rat Guide Service (804-514-1486) out of Ed Allen’s Boats and Bait reported that Chickahominy Lake mid-day water temperatures were in the middle to high 70’s in the main lake and in the creeks on Wednesday (6/13/2018). The lake level was about 8 inches above the top of the dam. The water was dark brown and moderately cloudy in the central lake.

|Fishing forecast: The wait's over; yellowfin tuna are on the scene

The Virginian-Pilot

, 2018

It’s that much-anticipated time of year when yellowfin tuna invade the waters of the mid-Atlantic. While numbers have been steadily growing off the coast of northeastern North Carolina, reports are starting to trickle in of fish being taken in the Norfolk Canyon – pointing to a continuing migration to the north.

June action was exceptional for several weeks last year, with these tasty brutes providing some fast and furious action all along our coast. Stories of six- and eight-bait spreads being blown up all at once were more the norm than a rarity.

The Stafford County Police Department Special Olympics Bass Tournament that was scheduled for tomorrow on the Potomac River has been postponed.

Postponed to Friday June 22,2018

Great call for everyone involved! Not an easy decision to come by from a tournament director and it will most certainly not please everyone, but it is the correct call none the less!!!!

It is better to have a few anglers pissed off at the time, then to have an accident happen and then have to attend a funeral!!!!

This site is a non-profit site that I personally pay for and edit. Due to health problems I no longer bass fish but have always loved the sport. Therefore I enjoy staying involved and helping provide information to those who do fish. Any links to businesses are to folks I know and respect.

I hope these reports are helpful.

Tight Lines to you all.
