Overview—Fishing continues to be good but conditions over the weekend were ugly with the high water and rain.
Catfish continue to hit cutbait and worms. Cutbait seems to be the best bait to use. Bass anglers are reportedly picking up a few upriver. Smallmouth action has been good until the muddy water came down.
Potomac River—Aqua Land reported catfish hitting on squid, nightcrawlers and cutbait. They also had croaker caught downstream of them.
Winter Harbor had reports of anglers catching croaker downriver. Catfish are really hitting well too.
Motts Run reported a great turn out at the Kids Fishing Derby. Lots of bluegill and catfish were caught and some bass hit cicadas. The catfish were after chicken liver.
From down the bay we hear that cobia came into the area. Speckled trout are hammering topwater in the Elizabeth River and other waters nearby . Flounder are hit or miss. Still no word on spades. Big blues are hitting in the Inlet near Virginia Beach.
Squirrel season is going well and there are plenty of them out there. Groundhogs are numerous. Do a farmer or gardener a favor and take some of them out. The young ones are actually good to eat.
June 1-15-Spring squirrel season. 6 per day.
