Saltwater - Better catches of Rockfish are occurring inside the rivers, as the water temps have cooled down. Inside the Rapp has definately improved, but it also receives more pressure than the other rivers. Things have improved inside the York river, for the Rockfish. Many are trolling tandem rigs with success, but some are also jigging over hard structures, with bucktails, and BKD lures on jig heads with varied weights, adjusted to the tide and current. Speckled Trout anglers have noticed a decrease in action, but good catches are still being made, and will continue to be made, by the die hard Speck anglers. Continue>>>>>-

 Freshwater - 18 lbs won the most recent Winter tournament on the lower James. Expect these weights to continue, as the James and Chickahominy produce excellent catches all winter. Chickahominy Lake should never be overlooked during this time, as some giant Bass are usually caught in December, January, and February. Jigs, jerkbaits, crankbaits, and swim baits will be on many angler's rods during this time. Another great lure for this time of year is the lipless crankbait, as it can be fished at any depth effectively. Don't forget about the Smallmouth action on the Rappahannock, and upper James, as this is the time of year when unforgettable days can occur. The Rapp has been especially good lately. Over at Lake Anna, the Bass and Crappie have been biting extremely well. Numerous Crappie over 13 inches have been caught this week. Continue>>>>>

Water Temperature Drop
A drop of more than 10 degrees in just a week and water is forcing fish to move to drops and slow down. Use slower presentations and spinning reels. 
A slight warm up this week, but don’t expect much of a water warm up.  Highs on Monday in the mid 40s but warming into the mid 50s this week. Overnight lows in the 30s to start the week and into the 40s on Thursday with a chance of showers on Friday.  Water temperature is in the mid 40s.
Spool 10-15 pound test Gamma Torque braid and tie to 8-10 pound test leaders. Leaders start about 5 inches from the rod tip to the reel handle. This keeps the knot out of the spool on casts and away from the rod tip on pitches. Make sure all jigs and hooks are sharp. Techniques include, drop shot (leaders around 5 inches), shaky head, Ned rigs, Neko rigs and hair jigs. Quantum spinning gear has smooth drags, essential for lighter line. Don’t be surprised by the biggest bass of the season.  continue>>>>>>

FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor



Fishing Report - November 22, 2019

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - Largemouth bass in the city are to be found on shallow sand, rocky or gravel banks adjacent to dropoffs. These areas are feeding grounds for the bass, as they come up from their holding areas in deeper water. Jigs, small plastic grubs and small crankbaits are the better choice for artificial baits. Fish deeper water with Silver Buddies, small plastic grubs or drop shots. The outflow from Blue Plains is holding large numbers of bass, along with crappie, gizzard shad, carp and catfish. Fox Ferry is visited by stripers on the high incoming tide, especially when it coincides with dawn and dusk. The Spoils are giving up some good catches of largemouth bass. continue>>>>>>

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – November 20, 2019

Posted on November 20, 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 upper 40’s in the lower main lake and lower in the
major creeks and the upper end of the lake on Wednesday (11/20/2019). The
lake level was about 4 inches above the top of the dam and the water was
light brown and slightly cloudy in the central lake, with some cloudy water
along downwind shorelines.

Some blue cats and bullheads were along drop-offs and in channels in the
main lake while others were dispersed onto flats and into creeks. Some cats
were suspended rather than holding near the bottom. When active, cats were
hitting live minnows and cut bait. Most crappie were along main lake
channel edges or in channels, frequently near wood cover. continue >>>
