Southern Virginia Bass Open

Spoke with a DNR official for VA today and he notified me that if all tournaments/gatherings do not cease within the upcoming week that all VA Lakes will be closed and they will follow suit with South Carolina on closing all Lakes, Rivers, etc. I was told that people can continue to enjoy fishing solo or with a partner but at no cost should tournaments or any bass events be held. So at this time we will continue to update everyone as we receive further information. Thanks SOVA Bass

NOTICE:

After much consideration, Sturgeon Creek Marina regrets to announce that the 1st Lake Anna Elite Series event on March 22, 2020 will be cancelled due to health concerns. We hope all our anglers understand that we did not make this decision lightly and just want provide the safest environment for friendly competition and fun that we can

It is our hope that the April 26, 2020 event will kick off the Lake Anna Elite Series season well. The only change to the rules will be that you only have to fish 3 of the five regular season events to qualify for the Lake Anna Elite Series Fall Classic.

Please feel free to call with any quastions
540 895-5095

IN ADDITION:

The Saturday March 21, 2020 CATT Trail Tournament has also been cancelled and they may do the event at a future date.

For Questions, Call Al Paliani @ 240 603-6183

Thanks

(Next Update: March 25, 2020)

Saltwater - Still slow on the saltwater side. A few are venturing out for Tautogs on ocean wrecks. Those that are are having good success. A few anglers are trying their luck at the Hatteras surf and Pamlico sound. In the surf, there's been some Puppy Drum, Bluefish, and Sea Mullet caught. There's been some good Speckled Trout caught from the sound this week, along with a few Red Drum.

Freshwater - The Shad are coming! Small numbers are being caught from the James near the city limits, and the catches seem to be more prevalent from the Rappahannock at this time. This bite will greatly improve with each warm day and as daylight hours increase. Dart rigs, spoon rigs, and Shad flies will be the hot ticket as always. One never knows what the hot color will be this year, and the Shad supplies are already flying out of the store. The White Perch are right behind the Shad, so the James, and other tidal rivers, are about to explode. Bloodworms are an excellent bait for the White Perch. This means the Bass are about to explode as well. Swim baits, spinnerbaits, lipless crankbaits, are just a few of the moving baits that will work well. When the Shad are in the rivers, the larger swim baits will often trigger bites from the bigger Bass. ..... Continue>>>>>

Virus Fishing
 
Lots of changes this week with ramps being closed and if they are open, many restrooms are closed. Social distancing is the rule and no groups of 10 or more to be complaint with virus protocols. But fishing is picking up as fish move shallow with water warming fast.
 
Warm week. Highs near 70 then falling to the upper 50sbefore returning to the 60s later into the weekend. Water is close to 60. 
 
A good time to be on the move as fish are moving as well. Find grass and find bass. Milfoil is emerging in parts of the river and these areas are great for red squarebill crankbaits and lipless cranks. Tie to 10 pound test Gamma Edge fluorocarbon line and upgrade hooks to Short Shank Mustad Ultra Point Triple Grips. You can upsize your hooks with these. They are especially important when it comes to lipless cranks. While red is still a great choice, other colors are working as well. When water is a bit clearer, chrome with a blue or black back and shad patterns work. Add chartreuse when the sun is shining. Crawl lipless baits along the bottom or snap from grass. For squarebills, contact cover and pause.

FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor

CONTAINS REPORTS FOR MOST LAKES, RESERVOIRS

AND RIVERS AROUND THE STATE

Fishing Report - April 3, 2020 

OVERVIEW - With the warmer weather this week, the water temperatures have increased. All species of resident and anadromous fish are still actively getting ready to spawn. All anglers must remember that the season for striped bass is closed and a moritorium is in effect for American shad, hickory shad (Potomac Only) and river herring (Alewife and Blueback Herring) in all tidal waters. Any of these species caught, must be returned to the water.

IMPORTANT NOTE - ALL NORTHERN VIRGINIA REGIONAL PARKS AND FAIRFAX COUNTY PARK AUTHORITY PARKS ARE CLOSED. WHILE THE GOVERNOR SPECIFICALLY DENOTES FISHING AS AN APPROVED OUTDOOR ACTIVITY DURING THE PANDEMIC, ONLY COMMERCIAL AND STATE PARK BOAT RAMPS ARE OPEN. GROUPS OF 10 OR MORE PERSONS ARE PROHIBITED. CHECK WITH AUTHORITIES BEFORE TRAVELING TO FISH IN OTHER AREAS. FISHING IN MARYLAND WATERS IS PERMITTED ONLY WHEN FISHING FOR FOOD, BY ORDER OF GOVERNOR HOGAN. REMEMBER THAT MARYLAND TRIBUTARIES OF THE POTOMAC RIVER ARE MARYLAND WATERS.

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - The fish should be roaming around structure and vegetation in shallow water. Chatterbaits, rattling crankbaits and spinnerbaits are the better choice for baits. Crappie fishing has picked up. Fletcher's Boathouse area is producing good numbers of fish, but Fletcher's Boathouse Park is closed. Species caught are white perch, catfish, hickory shad, smallmouth and largemouth bass, and some striped bass and walleye. .>>Continue>>>>

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – April 1, 2020

Posted on April 1, 2020 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 high 50’s (down from the 60’s) in most areas in the
lake on Wednesday (4/1/2020). The lake level was about 10 to 12 inches
above the top of the dam and the water was medium brown and slightly cloudy
in the central lake.

Many blue cats and bullheads were along drop-offs and in channels in the
main lake, but some were on flats and in creeks. When active, cats were
hitting live minnows and cut bait. Most crappie had left winter areas and
were moving into warmer water in the creeks and on flats near creek mouths,
but some were on wood cover along channel edges near creeks. Crappie in the
creeks were scattered, with many on or near wood cover or lily pad roots and
others in channels. Active crappie were hitting live minnows, Wright Bait
Co. and Southern Pro curly tail jigs, small tubes, Kalin crappie scrubs, and
small swim baits. Trolling with jigs and other lures was frequently more
effective than casting. White perch were scattered or in loose aggregates
on deep flats, drop-offs, and channels in the main lake and when active were
hitting small live minnows, swim baits, and jigs. continue >>>
