Weekly Fishing Report: Includes May Outlook

We Need the Rain? 

05/20/2018


Rain means high, muddy water and dangerous debris! Can be difficult to fish too!

Last week we had very successful outings. Caught fish in a variety of ways, fishing the conditions we were dealt. Water is around 72 degrees. Not much rain this week, Tuesday possible morning thunderstorms. Highs in the low 80s and lows in the mid 60s.

The key this week is to find clear or clearer water. Creeks are a good choice as they are not always very clear and fish are adjusted to it. Outgoing tide positions these fish on wood, docks and pad edges. At the mouth of small feeder creeks, clear water can also be found. Incoming tides generally bring clearer water.
 


FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor

Fishing Report - May 18, 2018

OVERVIEW - With the deluge of rain throughout the state this week, fishing should be off for a while as large slugs of water come roaring down all the rivers. High and muddy water will be the state of things for the coming week.

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - Due to the heavy rains this week, fishing is at a standstill. The water levels are predicted to be at flood stage through the middle of the week. Prior to the high water, small stripers, American shad and large catfish were the fare at Fletcher's Boathouse. Cut gizzard shad chunks are taking the stripers and catfish, while shad darts and small gold spoons are tempting the shad. This is the best year in recent memory for the American shad, while the smaller hickory shad are scarce.

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.

RAPPAHANNOCK RIVER: Bass action has been slow, ad this weekend’s expected thunderstorms won’t help. Big catfish continue to be available downriver on cut bait.

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – May 19, 2018

Posted on May 19, 2018 by Capt. Art

The report below is early since I will be involved in a meeting at Longwood
all week next week and this will be the only report this week. The lake is
up due to local rainfall and high tides below the dam, and the flow from the
recent rainfall in Richmond has not reached the lake yet. I’m not sure how
much more the water will rise since there is a lot of water in the swamp
just below Richmond, but levels should peak about Tuesday or Wednesday, then
start to drop back to normal over the next week.

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 high 70’s to low 80’s in the main lake and in the
creeks on Saturday (5/19/2018). The lake level was about a foot above the
top of the dam and rising. The water was medium brown and slightly cloudy
in the central lake.

|Fishing forecast: Big black drum are here, so now it's officially spring

The Virginian-Pilot

By Lee Tolliver
May 9, 2018

Chesapeake Bay anglers use a variety of barometers to get a handle on when spring really is starting to arrive. Croaker in gill nets is one of them. Flounder showing in the backwaters of the lower Eastern Shore barrier islands is another.

Big black drum in the inlets of the Shore is arguably the best, though. So, yes, despite the ups and downs of the weather, spring is officially here because the whiskered grunters of the drum world are providing anglers with some outstanding action.

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.
