Maryland Weekly Fishing Report Overview

August 24, 2016

All creatures big and small felt a welcomed relief Monday when temperatures and humidity dropped after a line of thunderstorms moved through the region Sunday. Water temperatures in the bay have dropped as much as 4 degrees in the past 24 hours and freshwater areas are seeing the same relief. Yesterday rivers and lakes could be seen steaming in the early morning chill. Hopefully this is the beginning of the hot and humid weather loosening its grip on the Maryland landscape.

TIDAL POTOMAC RIVER: **1/2; low 80s; more vegetation than the last 10-years;

Those that moan about lack-of-grass causing fish population issues just haven't been out there this year, The "lawns" above and below the WW Bridge are as vast as ever - and you can say the same thing for many sectors. "Grass" makes it easy to locate fish because you can see activity but the "absence" means you have to rely on the "unseen" habitat - and that causes issues for many of the Potomac anglers.

Anna Point Marina August Outlook

BASS-  The largemouth are now in a summer pattern that will last through the mid September transition. You will be able to catch them on top water baits early in the morning. before the sun comes up. If you wish to continue with the top water bite, then you must......."CHASE THE SHADE!"

POTOMAC RIVER - D.C. - Crappie are beginning to school around the Fletcher's Cove area with some catches made on small minnows. Catfish are still biting well on nightcrawlers and clam snouts. Smallmouth bass are taking small crankbaits, live crayfish and spinnerbaits along the banks, above Fletcher's. The Virginia shoreline is holding good largemouth bass all the way to National Airport. Rattling crankbaits are the preferred baits. Main river bridge pilings are giving up some good fish to patient anglers fishing soft plastic baits and deep diving crankbaits. Washington Channel sea wall is holding crappie schools and some bass.

Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star


RAPPAHANNOCK RIVER: Ken’s Tackle Shop reports plenty of rockfish in the river, and some big bass. A 9-pounder was weighed in from Honey Run, and a 22-inch bass was caught near Little Falls. Most are biting on minnows and plastics.

POTOMAC RIVER: Reel Bass Adventures reports grass remains the primary pattern with the low end of the tide being the most productive. Use top waters early or late in the day. Switch to creature baits or craw imitators later as well as swim jigs, stick worms, drop shots, chatter baits and small square bills. Bridge pilings and boat docks give up bass to a slowly fished finesse worm.

Local Fishing Report by the Green Top Professionals August 25, 2016

SaltwaterOutstanding! That’s probably the best way to describe the Cobia fishing this season. The bad news is that the season closes Aug 30. Anglers can catch and release only after Aug 30. Reports of fish in the 60 lb range have been numerous this week.

FreshwaterElite angler Charlie Hartley won the Bassmaster Northern Open out of Osbourne Landing on the James River, with a 3 day total of 41 lbs +. Closer to home however, Cody Pike of Powhatan finished in 2nd place, 2 1/2 lbs behind Hartley.

Fishing on the Potomac: Cooler mornings

August 28, 2016

By Steve Chaconas

With early high tides, use poppers like Lucky Craft G-Splash and Gunfish walkers on 10-12 pound GAMMA Copoly or 20-pound Torque braid. Buzzbaits also worth a shot. Keep a weightless stickworm on deck to cast to missed strikes. Use 20-pound Torque braid and a Mustad 3/0 Mega Bite hook.

Longer and cooler nights are lowering the water temperature to the low 80s. NBC Ch. 4 meteorologist "Weather Kim" Martucci says, “Highs around 90 all week with a chance of thunderstorms on Wednesday afternoon. Lows cooling to mid 60s. Dropping to around 80 on Friday.”

Outdoors Report for August 24, 2016

The heat was again a factor in the fishing, but the cooler spell this week will push things back on track.

Rappahannock River

Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported that anglers are still catching catfish on cutbait and stinkbait. Some bass are being caught on plastics on the river. The upper river was low but the recent storms pumped up the levels some. Look for smallies and sunfish to bite on live bait and spinnerbaits in eddies.


Fishing forecast | Catch cobia while you can


By Lee Tolliver
The Virginian-Pilot

The end of the 2016 cobia season – that’s something you probably never thought you would hear – is rapidly approaching. And with the action at its seasonal best, the advice here is to get in on as much of it as you can.

After Wednesday, anglers working Virginia waters will not be allowed to keep cobia until next year, and the jury is still out on exactly what increased tightening of the catch limit there will be in 2017. The season closes at the end of September in North Carolina.

As summer comes to a close, anglers are enjoying a few breaks from the stifling heat. And as we transition into fall, the more fall-like weather patterns will also encourage changes in the local fishing scene.

Cobia fishing has been good this season, and this week has been more of the same. But cobia hunters are also relishing an upswing in the number of larger fish, with several studs weighing in from 60 to 87-pounds.
