Outdoors Report - October 16, 2013

Anglers were few this week with all the rain. The report is short as a result.

Rappahannock River
Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported striper again at Hopyard. We also heard of good bass angling again before the river got muddy.

Potomac River
Winter Harbor reported that with the federal government shut down George Washington’s birthplace is closed. This is a popular place for anglers to go and now they cannot go fish. A few catfish were reported and spot were still biting downriver.

Inland waters
Motts Run –Will be closing soon.
Ken’s reported great crappie action in ponds on small grubs. Big bass were hitting in ponds on various baits.
Lake Anna has a lot of crappie starting to hit uplake on docks. Flip grubs and jigs to them. Striper are hitting well under birds at first and last light.

Saltwater
Virginia Beach anglers are experiencing great red drum action, hot spot action, some good bluefish action off the beach and awesome puppy drum in the inlets. Striper are hitting at the CBBT for experienced anglers that know where to go.
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reported incredible bluefish action, and some good rockfishing. It is amazing how many bluefish are still around. The rockfish are looking good too.

Hunting
We heard of very few deer taken. Squirrels and deer are finding acorns a tough nut to find this season. Some pre rut activity is starting to show up although the rut is a full month off. Early duck season was apparently quite good for those with a place to go.
