Maryland Fishing Report – Mar 13

Weekly Fishing Report: + March 2019 Outlook

Steve Chaconas National Bass Guide Service

A Change of Season
Over 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 presentations.
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.

MARCH 2019
This 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 By Charlie Taylor



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.

(Next Update: March 22, 2019)

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 materialize soon.

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – March 13, 2019

Posted on March 13, 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 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,

McCotter's Lake Anna Guide Service With the start of the tournament season upon us (I think Fishers of Men visits this weekend) I wanted to wish everyone good luck as well as try and get a little more regular with a fishing report/forecast. So good luck this weekend and this season, and I hope you find something helpful in our reports.

McCotter's 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 plant.

Spring is right around the corner. Dont miss out!
We have limited dates on the Susquehanna and upper Potomac. Contact us today to book your trip!
