Fishing Reports

Once again it is that time of year when fishing reports are few and far between. We will continue to try and find reports that are available and post a link to them here.

Stay safe out there. Risking your life isn't worth it.

Weekly Fishing Report: Ice Out

Steve Chaconas National Bass Guide Service

A break in the ice. Grab the PFD and launch your boat.

Water temperature is still in the mid 30s, rising just a bit. Around 60 to begin the week, rain on Tuesday. Then slipping into the mid 40s. Overnight lows at or about freezing. Warmer into the weekend.

Since water is still so cold, open hook lures are needed to take advantage of the few bites. Sharpen hooks and be ready to set the hook. Fish very slowly and deliberately. Using electronics to locate fish helps for confidence to stay in one spot for a while.

Includes January outlook Cold weather and shorter days have fish deep into winter patterns, a great time to fish. Look for steep drops! Take it slow, small and light…grubs, tubes, thin small worms, and hair jigs! Spinning gear handles lighter 6-pound test.....

FISHING REPORT By Charlie Taylor January 19, 2018

Fishing Report - January 19, 2018

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - Blue Plains Sewage Treatment Plant outflow is giving up lots of large gizzard shad to anglers jigging Silver Buddies, and bass to anglers fishing live minnows, jig 'n pig and plastic baits along the shoreline. Anglers fishing the Spoils are taking numbers of largemouth bass and crappie from dropoffs, on Silver Buddies, small dark-colored grubs, live minnows and crappie jigs. Four Mile Run is giving up bass, carp and catfish to anglers fishing the warmer waters. Small crankbaits and spinnerbaits are taking the bass along the rip-rap walls and bridge pilings, while catfish are taking cut bait and prepared baits.

December Outlook Anna Point Marina



BASS-Squarebill crankbaits, Rat L Traps, Dave's Tournament Tackle Tiger Shad Spinnerbaits, Damiki MTB Noisy Buzzbait, Poppers, Walking baits, Whopper Ploppers and my favorite, Double D CC Twitchin' Shad Soft Jerkbaits.

As always, Shakey Heads (check out SG's Heavy Metal Shakey Heads), Drop Shots and Jigs will also catch their fair share of fish. Start looking in the back third of all major creeks throughout the lake.

They will be on laydowns, willow grass, rocks and boatdocks. Look for rocky points with deep water near by, same for boat docks. The deep water will come into play when a cold front comes through. With water temps dropping, they will be feeding heavy for the cold winter months to come.

STRIPER- The linesides will start to make their move up into the rivers early this month. Look for them to be chasing shad and herring early and late in the day. A 4" paddle tail swimbait rigged on a 1/4oz jig head is my bait of choice. Start looking for birds to give locations of the fish away. Be respectful of other anglers already fishing in an area, do not run all the way into them with the big engine, this will spook the fish and then you will be dealing with an angry angler!!! Once the heavy feed has ceased, locate them on your electronics and drop a Damiki Vault or SG's Heavy Metal Blade down to them.

Towards the end of the month, you should be able to find them around the bridge in Terrys Run, the S-Turns to Little Florida in Pamunkey and around the 522 Bridge to the mouth of Goldmine Creek over on the North Anna arm of the lake. They should stay put in these areas all the way through November or until the water cools down to below 40 degrees or so.

CRAPPIE- The Specks will still be located on bridge pilings, boat docks (6-12 feet) and rock piles early in the month. As the water temps drop into the lower 60's, look for them to make a move to super shallow feeding (2-4 feet) areas up lake.

Try skipping a 2" Curly Tail Grub on a 1/16oz jig head under boat docks in the upper North Anna arm, same with Pamunkey and Terry's Run. Small minnows rigged on slip bobber's will also produce the best eating fish in the lake.

Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – January 17, 2018

Posted on January 17, 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 low to mid 30’s in the main lake and in the major creeks on Wednesday (1/17/2018). The lake level was about even with the top
of the dam and the water was light brown and clear in the central lake. The main lake and creeks thawed late last week, but were refreezing on Wednesday. The lake and creeks were partially iced over, and the ice was spreading, with most areas not yet frozen covered with slush from the snow. The ice will most likely melt late this week due to higher temperatures.

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.

Weekly Sportfishing Rundown Dr. Julie Ball

28 October 2017

We are now well into the fall fishing season, with plenty of good opportunities for anglers in most any venue along the Mid-Atlantic.

The speckled trout scene continues to develop, and the size of the fish continue to grow. Most backwater locations are hosting responsive and respectable fish, with jigs, plastics and Mirrolures attracting plenty of strikes. Rudee, Little Creek, and Lynnhaven Inlets, as well as the Poquoson flats are productive speck areas this week, presenting a surprisingly nice class of trout.

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.
