Outdoors Report - May 1, 2013

Fishing continues to be really good. Crappie are biting, bass are moving to spawn and the shad run is still going strong. Normally it is slow by now. Some big American shad were caught and released. Turkey hunting continues to be good as well. The next few weeks will be the highlight of the freshwater fishing for the entire year. Get out there now and enjoy!

Rappahannock River
The Rappahannock River was in good shape this weekend.

Ken’s Tackle reported great shad fishing near Falmouth. Smallmouth, crappie, striper, white perch and yellow perch all were biting well. Use bright colors and fresh bait for your quarry.

Potomac River
Aqua Land reported some white perch and catfish biting in the river. Snakeheads will show up near the surface after we get some really warm days. The gar will also show up. Bass are thick in the major tribs and bream are staging in the shallows now too.

 Motts Run
Reported some great largemouth, catfish and perch action. The catfish hit worms and chicken liver near downed structure. The white perch took worms. The bass hit worms and plastics.
Don’t forget their Kids’ Fishing Day in June!

Lake Anna
Chris Craft, professional guide, continues to put clients on some nice crappie. They are hitting jigs and minnows now in the grassy areas. Check it out at www.ccbassnlakeanna.blogspot.com/
The bass bite has come on as well. Use crappie colored baits as the fish are hitting small crappie as they move in to spawn.

Hunting
Since all turkey must be called in to check or done via the Internet, I do not have an accurate report on how many birds were taken. However, I hear there were plenty still gobbling.

One note: Be careful out there and if you hear another hunter working a bird be courteous and ethical and leave it alone. Don’t go bump or mess their hunt up!

Events
May 4 is Youth Fishing Day in King George. Call KG Parks and Rec to register. First 100 kids only. 775-4FUN.
