Outdoors Report - June 26, 2013

Fishing is quite good on just about all fronts right now.

Rappahannock River
Bass anglers are taking decent fish from the creeks on the moving tides. Try plastics and shad colored topwater early and late in the day.

Catfish are hitting fresh cut bait the best. Worms are not working near as well. Shrimp is also a good bet. Gar are hitting minnows on the river now. Some nice bream can be had in very shallow water near weeds and under trees. Use worms and an UL rod and reel.

Potomac River
Aqua Land reported catfish hitting on squid, nightcrawlers and cutbait. They also had some nice croaker caught. Puppy drum just under legal size and a few over legal size have arrived. Some keeper spot are also in the area. Skates are around as well.

Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported that customers are catching croaker around Colonial Beach on squid and Fishbites. Ken’s also reported incredible snakehead action on the river and mainly the tributaries using frog and mouse lures that are weedless.

Lakes
Motts Run reported a great catfish bite. The catfish were after chicken liver. The bass are hitting and average around 1-2 pounds. Some nice bream are biting too. Most of the fish are NOT being caught from the piers but rather from anglers in boats.

Hunting Run Reservoir is seeing the submerged aquatic vegetation come on strong. But, the fishing is reportedly still very good.

Saltwater
From down the bay we hear that cobia continue to make their way into the area. Flounder action picked. The York River croaker action is good and some good spadefish action is being had in the normal haunts. Redfish are still around and bluefish are showing up now. The tuna bite cooled off but then is reportedly picking back up in the ocean.
