Outdoors Report - October 3, 2012

Fishing was quite good until the rain upriver on the Rapp muddied the water. The Potomac continues to produce very good fishing.  

Potomac River

Aqualand (301-259-0572) had reports of lots of fish being caught. Catfish are hitting all the time. There are reportedly small but keeper black drum and red drum hitting. Breezy conditions are making it tough on smaller boats to get out though. Some rockfish are hitting but most are throwbacks. White perch are hitting quite well. Squid seems to be the bait of choice for all species now. 

Rappahannock River

Catfish continue to hit well on everything. Try fresh bream or perch cut or whole. Bass fishing is good on the outgoing tide. Topwater is working later in the day. Spinnerbaits are a good choice. 

Inland

Motts Run Reservoir (540-786-8989) reported some citation Shellcracker, some perch and a few catfish. Nightcrawlers are the bait of choice on the reservoir. Some decent bass are being caught too. 

Saltwater

Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reports really good bluefishing and the rockfish season opens in the Virginia waters next week. Capt. Ryan has a few openings. 

The cobia are heading south fast but large fish are being caught near the CBBT. Flounder are still hitting well and specks are taking to the usual haunts near Mobjack, Lynnhaven and Rudee Inlet. Reds are everywhere and some Spanish are still at the Oceanfront. Croaker and spot are hitting in lower rivers and creeks.
