Outdoors Report - September 12, 2012

 

Fishing continues to be good but the cold front will certainly change things.  

Potomac River

Ken’s (898-1011) reported that Westmoreland State Park was a good destination. There were white perch, striper, puppy drum and croaker hitting on squid. Some puppy drum and croaker were hitting near the 301 bridge too.  

Aqualand (301-259-0572) had reports of lots of puppy drum that were too small, croaker that are nice size right at dark on squid and bloodworm. Lots of catfish are hitting. 

Rollins Seafood (540-663-3597) in King George reported really good croaker in the river and some smaller catfish. Crabs are really nice size. Call them for an order of crabs. 

Before the front we boated three species of catfish in one short trip. Croaker were hitting on squid for us. 

Rappahannock River

Ken’s reported an angler showed up with a snakehead they caught from the river not far from the City Dock. Some of you may say, “There goes the neighborhood!” But, the snakeheads are great to eat and they have not impacted the bass population one bit in the Potomac so far. Catfish were hitting well too. 

Inland

 

Motts Run Reservoir (540-786-8989) no report. However, the reservoir is a beautiful place to be during the fall. 

Saltwater

 

Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reports very good angling for bluefish. Some blues are in the 5 pound class. Redfish are also common now. A few croaker are being caught near dark. Capt. Ryan he does have some dates open this month for some of the best variety of the summer right now.
