Weekly Fishing Report: March in like a Lamb

Steve Chaconas National Bass Guide Service

But not so much lately. Cold overnights and chilly overcast days have kept water temperatures in the low 40s. Slow down.

Another cold week, with snow possible. Upper 40s to around 50 for the week. Overnight lows around freezing. 

Fish are still up shallow, but more difficult to catch. Try finesse-fishing techniques like drop shot, shakey head, and split shot rigs. For these, use 20-pound Gamma Torque braid with 6-8 pound test Edge leader. The drop shot and split shot rigs work best with 2/0 MUSTAD Mega Bite hooks.

FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor

Fishing Report - March 16, 2018

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - With the seasonal cold 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 when 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.

Old Man Winter is just not letting go this year, after a nice warm up in February and early March, it has cooled back off.
March is known as the BIG FISH MONTH here in the Commonwealth, so be sure to check your line, rod and reel and get out there and land the fish of a lifetime.

BASS- The largemouth will start to make a move into the shallows all month long and will be willing to take a variety of reaction baits as they feed up in preparation for the spawn. If venturing uplake in the stained water, shallow crankbaits like the SPRO LITTLE JOHN 50 will draw strikes from hungry bass.

Dave’s Tournament Tackle Tiger Shad Spinnerbaits fished in the dormant/emering willow grass has been a proven tactic for many years. New for this year from Dave's Tournament Tackle is the Blade Roller Spinnerbait, the round head will deflect better for you when fishing in wood cover and it also features hidden weigh technology (3/8 has a 1/4 profile).

Search baits like a Rat-L-Trap or Red Eye Shad has always been a favorite lure choice of mine. Fish these baits around the many rocky points that are adjacent to the channel.

Mid lake will have better water clarity, suspending jerkbaits fished on main lake points, rip rap banks, deep boat docks and bridge pilings are a great choice to have a chance at a BIG FAT BUCKET MOUTH! As the water warms, you can get more aggressive with the cadence that you are fishing.

If fishing around bait fish, A-Rigs rigged with four inch swimbaits, like the BIG BITE SUICIDE SHAD will do the trick. A 1/2oz Blade Bait made by SG HEAVY METAL BAITS will catch them as well and the popular Damiki Vault.Also, a 1/4oz Scounger Head rigged with a soft jerkbait will catch them.

As the water warms into the 50's and stays there, a soft jerkbait like the Zoom Super Fluke, Damiki Armor Shad, Deep Creek Lures Carolina Shad and the Double-D CC Twitchin' Shad are all great choices. You can fish these in the emergent willow grass, around and under boat docks and around laydown trees. I rig them with a Gamakatsu EWG 4/0 hook on 12lb Izorline XXX Golden Green line.

CRAPPIE- The Crappie had started making a slight move towards their spawning grounds, however they were stopped by the cold weather and falling water temps. You can still catch them around bridge pilings in 10-15 feet of water. As the water warms back up, look for them to move towards the willow grass, boats docks and laydown trees. A two inch curly tail grub rigged on a 1/16oz jighead or small minnows rigged under a slip bobber with catch limits of the tasty panfish.

STRIPER- The LINESIDES are on the move uplake and will continue to move uplake all month. Jerkbaits, four inch swimbaits, blade baits and spoons will all catch fish. There are still a number of birds on the lake diving on baitfish, these feathered fish locaters will help you put a few in the cooler.

By the end of the month, concentrate on the upper sections of the lake, above the 522 bridge on the North Anna arm and from the mouth of Terry's Run all the way up to the 522 bridge on the Pamunky Arm.

DOWN LAKE- 50-53 Degrees
MID LAKE- 46-48 Degrees
UP LAKE- 44-48

FISHING REPORT March 8, 2018

Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

RAPPAHANNOCK RIVER: Chris Hicks reports the crappie bite is starting to pick up and should continue to improve as this week’s rain brings the river’s temperature down. Small minnows are best bet for landing quality slabs. The catfish continue to feed actively but are locked in on fresh-cut bait. Anglers can use whatever is available; even netted threadfin shad will attract the cats. Bass are active but remain situated mostly in the deeper waters of the main river channels. Spinner baits and crank baits in fall colors (orange and brown) are a good choice.

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – March 14, 2018

Posted on March 14, 2018 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 mid 40’s in the lower main lake and slightly lower in the major creeks and upper mail lake on Wednesday (3/14/2018). The lake level was about an inch above the top of the dam. The water was light brown and slightly to moderately cloudy in the central lake.

The Virginian-Pilot Last Report of Season

By Lee Tolliver
November 22
, 2017

It’s that time of year again, when the Fishing Forecast goes to bed for a few months, as a declining number of species make anglers focus their attention on just a few of our cold-weather favorites. But that’s the wonderful thing about the fisheries around southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina — there’s always something to go fishing for.

This site is a non-profit site that I personally pay for and edit. Due to health problems I no longer bass fish but have always loved the sport. Therefore I enjoy staying involved and helping provide information to those who do fish. Any links to businesses are to folks I know and respect.

I hope these reports are helpful.

Tight Lines to you all.
