Outdoors Report - March 27, 2013

The weather certainly has a damper on angling for many people, but on warm days the fish seem to be biting.

The Rappahannock River was clear  but with the rain and snow on Sunday and Monday it will be muddy by mid to late week. Hopefully it will clear before Easter. However, Ken’s Tackle in Fredericksburg reported catfish up to 10 pounds at the City Dock. There were white perch at Hicks and Little Falls too. Remember that a herring moratorium (NO TAKING HERRING) is in place. Once the river goes down things will pick up.
Winter Harbor reported some catfish caught in the river and the creeks. A few white perch were also taken as well.
McCotter’s Lake Anna Guide Service reported good crappie angling and some nice bass hitting in deeper water. Those of you with Facebook can watch his page. www.facebook.com/McCotterssLakeAnnaGuideServce.

Local ponds were a bit better for angling. Donna at Ken’s told us that Hunting Run Reservoir was great for bass and crappie. Her customers were catching lots of bass in ponds and plenty of crappie on minnows.

Motts Run is open on the weekends and will be open in April during the week except Monday and Tuesday.

Events
