Outdoors Report - November 13, 2013

Angler numbers are low, but for those still fishing the waters are still producing.

RAPPAHANNOCK RIVER
Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported that crappie are biting well on the river. Try deep sunken treetops and logs. Striper and small bass are also active on the river. Small eels were taking some nice fish.

POTOMAC RIVER
Winter Harbor reported that most anglers switched to fishing for rockfish, and they are trolling umbrellas and sassy shads for them.

Ken’s reported that crappie were biting very well on the creeks. Use minnows. Small pods of snakehead fry are commonly seen now.

INLAND WATERS
Ponds and small lakes have produced some nice bass and crappie on minnows lately. Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported that the trout pond in Fredericksburg was producing well after it was stocked the first week or so of Nov.. They also added that Bowie’s Pond in Westmoreland was hot for bass and crappie this past week.

Lake Anna anglers are finding crappie on brushpiles and docks in 5-10 feet of water. Stripers are uplake hitting sassy shad and jerkbait-type lures and then moving to deeper water where they can be caught jigging spoons.

SALTWATER
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reported very good rockfishing this week. The fish are looking very fat and healthy, with some going up to the mid-30-inch mark.

HUNTING:
Muzzleloader season picked up with some nice deer reported. Pern’s Supermarket had a few nice bucks checked in. A nice ten-point story was shared with me. It appears that areas that were hit with HD last year are struggling, while other areas are doing well. Winter Harbor had a lot of reports of deer being taken down there.
