March 2019 Outlook
Chaconas National Bass
Change of Season
a matter of 10 days, water temps have soared. Longer days and
sunshine have moved fish from late winter to early spring.
Activate lures, look for grass, but maintain slow
More sun this week and longer days will
continue to keep driving water temperatures above 55 degrees.
Highs creeping from 50 to the upper 50s until the weekend.
Overnight lows warming to around 40.Milfoil and coontail grasses
are emerging up to 6 inches tall.
The patterns of winter will
still produce, but fish are loving the weather and have moved to
flats near creek mouths. Time to break out lipless crankbaits,
spinnerbaits and jerkbaits.
month brings the widest swing…early it fishes like late
winter. By month’s end, it’s early spring! It’s
transition time. Fish are moving. After last year’s sparse
grass, look for grass beginning to green up in those areas first.
Don’t ignore hard cover, drops, points and inside creek
bends in creek mouths and river points! Fish stage in creek
mouths like Swan, Piscataway, Broad, Dogue and Little Hunting
before going to spawning areas. Bryan’s Cove across from
Mount Vernon is a good early spring spot. Areas warmed by sun
will be best!

Fishing Report - March 15, 2019
POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - With the seasonal cooler
weather forecast for the coming week, bass should pull back off
their traditional spawning areas. A few fish are being caught,
and the action should only get better as the weather warms.
Better baits include red or chartreuse rattling crankbaits,
Silver Buddies, jig 'n pig or plastic grubs. At Fletcher's
Boathouse, white perch are showing, along with some shad. Blue
catfish are available to bottom fishermen, and some striped bass
are present. Stripers, shad and herring must be returned to the
water, as the season is closed. When the temperature warms and
more herring show in the river, the larger catfish will turn on.
Smallmouth bass are being caught on deep-diving crankbaits along
the Virginia Shoreline from Key to Chain Bridge. Some large
crappie are being caught in Fletcher's Cove by anglers fishing
smelt in the brushpiles.

Saltwater- The Bluefins are coming in! Some
anglers are going after them with spinning outfits, and catching
all they can handle. There's been some Yellowfins caught, along
with some Blackfins. There has also been some gaffer Dolphin
caught over the last week. From the beaches in Hatteras, there
have been some Blow Toads, and Sea mullet caught.
Freshwater- There was quite a big bag of Bass
caught from Lake Gaston over the weekend, 25+ lbs was the winning
weight. Over at Kerr, things were not so spectacular, 12+ lbs was
the winning weight in a federation tournament there. Tournament
weights were down at Anna also, but some big fish were caught. An
8 lber, along with some 6's were brought in by non tournament
anglers. Bass are starting to bite spinnerbaits just about
everywhere. Jerkbaits are still good, along with swimbaits,
crankbaits, and jigs. Look for the Carolina rig bite to

(804-514-1486) out of Ed Allen’s Boats and Bait reported
that Chickahominy Lake mid-day water temperatures were in the
high 40’s in the lower main lake and the low to mid 50’s
in the major creeks on Wednesday (3/13/2019). The lake level was
a few inches above the top of the dam. The water was light brown
and slightly to moderately cloudy in the central lake.
Some blue cats and bullheads were along drop-offs and in
channels in the main lake while others had dispersed onto flats.
When active, cats were hitting live minnows and cut bait. Some
crappie were still on drop-offs and in channels in the main lake,
especially near wood cover, but others have begun moving into the
major creeks. Activity has varied with water temperature
stability, with active crappie hitting live minnows,

the start of the tournament season upon us (I think Fishers of
Men visits this weekend) I wanted to wish everyone good luck as

hope you find something helpful in our reports.
Lake Anna Guide Service March Fishing Forecast
Overview: Lake Anna is slightly above full pool on the main
lake with water temperatures ranging from 42-54 depending on the
region and amount of runoff. The up lake region is coolest with
the most stained water after nearly five inches of rain fell in
the watershed last week. Mid lake is slightly stained and 45-48
on most afternoons. Down lake is 47-53 with visibility down to
four feet in most areas. Overwintering threadfin shad have begun
to move out of the mid lake region, though many still remain.
Bass, striper, wiper, crappie and white perch are still on this
bait. The hot zone of bait is from 208 region down to the power
