Upcoming Youth Fishing Rodeos

Youth fishing rodeos are great events to introduce a child to fishing, even if you've never been fishing yourself. Typically held at small ponds or lakes, the rodeos are aimed at helping beginners catch a fish!

What We Do RAHF Tournament Team RAHF Fishing Trip Wounded Hero Fishing System Past…
Reel American Heroes Foundation
Today one of our Proud Supporters informed us that they moved to an application process and that the application process for sponsorships and that it has ended for the year. We were shocked at hearing this news as they were always dedicated to helping our wounded, disabled and combat heroes. To receive this information approximately 2 months before RAHF9 hurts, as we just lost a large donation for our heroes today is $3,000.
It will be really tough for me to raise this money before RAHF9 as I will be having a surgery to replace 3 discs in my neck in the next few weeks. For that reason, I am making a personal request for donations to RAHF to help our Wounded, Disabled and Combat Heroes receive much needed recreational therapy on the water.
If you share this, please copy the text and put it in with the shared post.

GREEN TOP FISHING REPORT Not available due to Green Top making change in web site

Updated: June 13th, 2019 by Stan Cobb

(Next Update: June 21th, 2019) 

Saltwater- Cobia are hard and heavy, and will continue throughout the summer. Lately, with the rough conditions, chumming has been super productive. Eels are what most use at the end of a hook, but live fish, such as Croaker, are excellent. The problem there, is that the Croakers have been hard to find. At least, the good sized ones have been. Use plenty of chum, as to make the scent trail as strong as possible. Be prepared to tangle with sharks, however, as they love Eels, and are attracted to the chum slick/scent. The Drum action has slowed this week, primarily due to the rough conditions. There are plenty around however, it's just that they haven't been spotted along the surface much this week. The Flounder reports have slowed also, over the past week. June is typically a great month for the bigger Flounder at the bridge tunnel. The Cell usually starts to pick up about now also continue>>>>>

Freshwater- The upper James has returned to elevated and muddy conditions, making things difficult for fishing and navigating, over the last few days. Prior to that, the topwater bite has been good for the Smallmouth. The lower James remains consistent for the Largemouth, as Bass relate to early summer patterns. They are being caught along the main river, inside the creeks, and inside the pits still. The Chickahominy river and lake continue to provide trophy opportunities for Bass. Topwater action, such as grass frogs, soft plastics on Texas rigs and shaky heads, and crankbaits, are the staples once warm weather settles in. It seems as though the Snakehead has gained quite a bit of popularity along the Potomac River. Continue>>>>>

Clearing Water
After last week’s storms with high winds, the Potomac is finally settling down. The decision is going to location and what type of cover you prefer...docks, wood or grass…or all three.
Water is around 80 and fish are pretty active, especially early. Sunshine and around 90 all week. No real chance of rain until Saturday.
Soft plastic jerkbaits are often overlook on the Potomac. Pretty simple technique and works around all cover as long as the water isn’t too muddy. Though with stained high water, fish are up in shallow water and with sun can find the baits. Rig on a 3/0 wide gap hook. There are weighted hooks like the Mustad swimbait hook. Use 1/16 ounce to start. This will allow you to fish it faster in clear water and allow it to kill when coming to cover.

A spinning rod works well with 20 pound Gamma Torque braid along with a 10 pound test Edge fluorocarbon leader. Beef up the leader for fishing over grass. Make long casts when the water is clear, otherwise cast past targets and work the bait to them. Texas rig and use a twitch and slight pause presentation. There are many cadences that will work under varying conditions. Experiment a bit. As for colors, white is great in clear water or in stained water on sunny days. For very clear water, try more shad patterns and some chartreuse. Even black baits will catch fish when there is low light or stained water. 


FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor



Fishing Report - June 21, 2019

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - Main river bridge pilings are holding largemouth bass and catfish. These fish are taking deep-diving crankbaits, plastic worms and grubs, and jig 'n pig baits on falling tides. The Washington Channel grassbed is giving up some bass to anglers working spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, frogs and plastic worms in the grass. Rattling crankbaits, retrieved parallel to the dropoff, are also taking some nice fish. The structure outside Blue Plains is giving up some good bass on plastic worms and frogs, topwater baits and spinnerbaits. Submerged barges are also giving up bass to anglers fishing jig 'n pig and plastic baits along the deeper edges. Fox Ferry pilings are holding lots of good fish. These fish are taking crankbaits, plastic worms and jig 'n pig on ebb tides. Topwater baits are taking some fish early and late in the day.

POTOMAC RIVER - BELOW WOODROW WILSON BRIDGE - Largemouth bass are firmly entrenched in the available grass beds, both in the main river and in the creeks. Buzzbaits, plastic frogs, Senkos & spinnerbaits, worked over and around the grass on higher tides will take limits of 2-6 pound bass, while dark colored plastic worms, swim jigs and Senkos seem to work better on falling tides. continue>>>>>>

Fishing Report

Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star


POTOMAC RIVER: Reel Bass Adventures reports tournaments continue to swarm the river and if you avoid heavily pressured community holes good bass catches are available on isolated grass beds with chatter baits and creature baits. Throwing buzz baits and shallow running crank baits along spatterdock edges will draw strikes. A consistent .producer has been lay downs fished with finesse worms or small jig-and-craw combos. The blue gill bite remains strong for fly rodders using small poppers.

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – June 19, 2019

Posted on June 19, 2019 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 70’s to low 80’s in the lower main lake and in the major creeks on Wednesday (6/19/2019). The lake level was about 6 inches above the top of the dam. The water was medium brown and slightly cloudy in the central lake, and more cloudy along some downwind shorelines.

Some blue cats and bullheads were along drop-offs and in channels in the
main lake while others had dispersed onto flats and into creeks. When
active, cats were hitting live minnows and cut bait. Some crappie were in
creeks and along shorelines in the main lake, but most crappie were along
main lake channel edges, frequently near wood cover. continue>>>
