Outdoors Report - April 2, 2014

Fishing is quite good. Anadromous fish are heading upriver, and pond anglers are taking plenty of fish as well.

HUNTING
The youth day is April 5 this year, and apprentice hunters are eligible to hunt, too, if they have an apprentice license and are mentored by a licensed hunter. Only the youth and apprentice hunters may carry a gun on that special day. Turkey seem to be plentiful out in fields. I think the old boys may be henned up in many locations though, but we will see!

FISHING
Rappahannock River — Ken’s Tackle Shop in Spotsylvania reported white perch caught at Little Falls on bloodworms and small minnows. Hickory shad and American shad are still being caught at the Fredericksburg City Dock. The rockfish are in full force, BUT catch and release only. The fish are reportedly big and biting bloodworms around Fredericksburg. The river is likely to be a mess by the time you are reading this report but hopefully clear by Thursday or Friday. Pern’s has fresh worms and bait, and many customers are buying and going fishing. Hopyard is a nearby spot where catfish and perch can be had.

Potomac River—Winter Harbor Seafood in Oak Grove reported plenty of catfish biting everywhere on any bait.
Aqua Land in Southern Maryland also reported more than enough catfish action.

Ponds—Ponds were the ticket this weekend as the river turned brown and muddy due to all the rain. Crappie are hitting hard and bass are becoming aggressive. As water temperatures warm up, the bass will go into spawn mode.

Lake Anna—Chris Craft of Lake Anna Guide Service http://www.ccbassnlakeanna.blogspot.com/ reports great striper action on the Lake.
