Outdoors Report - December 4, 2013

Mark and Missy Fike

Overview
Fishing has dwindled to the few hardy souls that don’t hunt. That is not to say that fishing is not good, or they cannot be caught. Lack of interest is the big issue. Good fishing exists for winter catfish; Lake Anna for striper and bass; chain pickerel in local swamps and creeks and, of course, striper. We anticipate stopping the report in a week or so until March, when fishing picks up again. However, please do send photos of fish or game to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Rappahannock River
No report, other than that catfish and crappie can be caught. Some dedicated bass anglers are hitting deeper structures and pulling out bass.

Potomac River
Winter Harbor reported that some anglers were trying for rockfish, with little luck.

Saltwater
The rockfish are out there, but windy weather and the holiday weekend kept many anglers in. Look for the fish to get bigger and fatter through the first of the year.

Hunting
Pern’s Supermarket on Rt. 3 reported four deer checked in, to include a nice 10-point buck by a local man.
Hunters have seen more deer lately, but many are small fawns or yearlings. Be sure before you pull the trigger, you are shooting at what you think it is!

Squirrels are hard to find in most areas due to the lack of acorns. Look for holly trees. They are eating lots of holly berries now.
