Outdoors Report - August 8, 2012

Fishing has been quite good for many species but there have been some slow days as well. The saltwater action is red hot now. 

Potomac River

White perch are hitting shrimp and Fishbites. They also will take small grubs, spinners and spoons. Bass are hitting in the grass in the tribs. Use topwater during low light and Senkos during the day. 

Aqualand (301-259-0572) reported white perch and croaker hitting very well. Rental boats are getting plenty of those. Try squid and shrimp. Catfish are also a regular for customers. A few small rockfish were hitting but reports now are being heard of keeper fish too.. Remember the 18 inch minimum. Use bucktails and jigs or spoons. Puppy drum are everywhere. Be sure to put them back. They must be 18 inches. 

Ken’s Tackle (540-898-1011) reported good croaker action in the Colonial Beach area and some decent night action for crabbers. No spot have shown up yet. Downriver the striper are hitting and bluefish too. Ken’s has a variety of fishing gear to include plenty of saltwater items. 

Rappahannock River

Ken’s reported smallmouth in deep holes upriver and great bream action. Catfish are everywhere but on the small side and bass fishing on the river has been consistent. Try outgoing tide, red shad colored plastics. 

Inland

Ponds are giving up nice bass. Try topwater in low light situations and then go deeper with plastics. Crappie are hitting jigs and bright colored jigs and grubs. 

Motts Run Reservoir (540-786-8989) also reported some average size bass and some small bream on night crawlers. They report that the grass carp are really starting to do a good job now and there is less vegetation to contend with. Don’t forget the night catfish action on the 20th!

Saltwater

Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reported great bay fishing with some really pretty  Spanish macks,  Bluefish are making a good show now too. Plenty of puppy drum are in the mid bay area. Some decent croaker are hitting inland and a few speckled trout are also present.
