Outdoor Report - June 4, 2014

Fishing continues to be very good all over.

HUNTING
Squirrel season will come back in June 7 and continue through June 21.

FISHING
Rappahannock River — Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported rockfish action from Rt. 1 down to the Fredericksburg City Dock on plugs. We hear that bass angling is good on spinnerbaits around creek mouths. Try plastics and jigs near woody or leafy structure in the river for chunky two-pound bass. Bream and crappie can be held in these same locations. 

Potomac River — Aqua Land in Southern Maryland reports that anglers are catching some rockfish on various baits, and some are decent-sized. Catfish are hitting well on night crawlers and other baits, too. Aqua Land also had reports of some croaker downriver.

Ken’s Field and Stream in Oak Grove reported that they are hearing of lots of people catching croaker downriver, as well. Try squid, shrimp or Fishbites.

Ponds — Bass, crappie and bream are hitting among the lily pads in ponds. Try plastic baits or topwater weedless baits for them. Some crappie are hitting on the beds, too. Bream are after crickets and hoppers.

Motts Run Reservoir — reported nice catfish action. Crappie are also hitting offshore. Some nice bass are being caught all over the reservoir.

Hunting Run Reservoir — has given up some very nice bass recently. A great stringer of crappie is definitely a possibility out there, as well.

Saltwater — Croaker are hitting very consistently near Tappahannock, we are told.

Captain Ryan Rogers of the Midnight Sun (804-580-0245) reports good rockfish action. Many smaller fish between 20-30 inches are also being caught. 

Puppy drum, flounder, a few bluefish and some croaker are now being caught with regularity in the lower Bay. Look out for the big red drum, too!
