Outdoors Report - September 25, 2013

Overview—Fishing has been good but waning. Some of the drop off is due to less anglers on the water. Some of it is the saltwater fish transitioning out of the area.

Rappahannock River
We continue to hear that bass fishing on the river is very good. Cranks and plastics continue to work equally well. Crappie are hitting a bit more now and schooling on tree tops. Catfish are hitting cutbait and worms.

Potomac River
Aqua Land reported mostly catfish hitting on cut bait. Some of the fish are quite nice. Some smaller perch are found on the shoals and drop offs. Small spoons are catching them. Winter Harbor reported that in Nomini Creek the perch, catfish, rock and a few spot have been caught. Bloodworms and squid are the key baits.

Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania said an angler came in and told them that a small shark swam by them at George Washington’s Birthplace.

Another angler fishing near Machodoc Creek caught a small flounder, a perch and then a rockfish on consecutive casts. All were small though. No croaker were reported this week.

Inland waters
Motts Run –The fishing has been slow on the reservoir. A few nice yellow perch and shellcracker were caught. A few catfish were also caught.

Hunting Run Reservoir had a 7 pound, 24” bass caught on a yellow, green  worm.

A pond in Westmoreland gave up 60 crappie to an angler.

Cobia are numerous and in schools staging at the mouth of the bay. Spanish are being caught on the oceanfront and some nice spot and puppy drum are caught in the Virginia Beach area too. Red drum are prowling the lower bay and flounder fishing has been excellent in the usual haunts in the lower bay. Five pound fish have been common. Some nice red drum are cruising the CBBT at the 2nd and 3rd islands.
