Outdoors Report - November 6, 2013

Angler numbers are dropping, especially because muzzleloader season came in. However, fishing is still decent.

Rappahannock River
Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported that some anglers are trolling very slow and picking up some striper.

Perch are still biting downriver. No word on what they are biting. Some crappie and a few bass near Massaponax Creek.

Potomac River
Winter Harbor reported that fishing for catfish was very good. Squid worked well. A few perch are hitting here and there. Aqua Land reported white perch and catfish hitting squid, but that was it. Catfish seem to be the one willing customer these days. Unfortunately, no stripers were reported.
Inland waters

Ponds and small lakes are good for crappie and bass. Some decent bream were caught in local ponds as the front was rolling through.

Saltwater
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reported very good rockfishing this week. Some fat and healthy fish are showing up.

Hunting
Muzzleloader season started this past Saturday. None of our sources that run check stations showed any deer. Some saw turkey, though. Opening morning was very quiet, too quiet in the woods. I personally heard three distant shots, and that was it all morning. Squirrel hunting has been tougher lately due to the lack of acorns.
