Outdoors Report - March 20, 2013

Overview— Cold rain messed the rivers up again and angler participation was minimal. However, the crowds in local fishing aisles at stores picked up. Anglers are just waiting for warm weather to sneak out and toss in a line.
The Rappahannock River was muddy the end of last week and the weekend. The rain on Sunday likely messed it up again. However, rumors are spreading of shad below Port Royal. Typically this is the time when they are arriving in that area. Remember that a herring moratorium (NO TAKING HERRING) is in place. Once the river goes down things will pick up.

Potomac River
Winter Harbor reported few anglers out fishing. Aqua Land reported the same. Look for the bass bite at the mouths of Potomac, Aquia and Occoquan Creeks to open up in the next week. Try jigs on the flats when the fish go into prespawn mode.

Lake Anna at Anna Point Marina and guide Chris Craft went out Saturday and shifted downlake, fished for a few hours and boated some nice bass using a Rhino Tuff Crankbait. The fish look fat and healthy! Check him out at http://www.ccbassnlakeanna.blogspot.com/

Local ponds were a bit better for angling. White seemed to be the color of choice for several anglers although a worm made a sunfish bite Miss Ashley Sander’s line. Minnows were taking crappie but you had to put the bait right in their face.

Events
April 6th is the Youth Spring Gobbler Day. Youth 15 and younger can hunt that day and must carry the firearm. No adults may shoot or carry firearms. Take a youth hunting and send us a picture of your success!
April 13th: Opening day of spring gobbler season ½ hour before sunrise until noon.
