FISHING
Rappahannock River — Ken’s Tackle Shop in Spotsylvania reported big white perch caught at the Fredericksburg City Dock. Hickory shad and American shad are being caught at Falmouth. There were more rockfish caught this week, but they are catch and release only. Both smallmouth and largemouth bass were being caught in numbers below Little Falls this past week and weekend. The river is likely to going 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—There have been plenty of catfish caught in the River. Some anglers are reporting striper in the Rver, too. White perch should be showing up in creeks by now.

Ponds—Crappie are still hitting, and bass are becoming aggressive. As water temperatures warm up, the bass will go into spawn mode.

Old Cossey Pond was wide open for trout. Super Dupers and Magnum worms, Kastmaster spoons and minnows were red hot for trout.

Motts Run is now open. They report good catfish action and some very nice white perch being caught on the reservoir this past weekend. Chicken liver and night crawlers were good baits.
