Outdoors Report - June 20, 2012

 

Rappahannock River

Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reported that the river has been short on anglers. Many anglers are finding that the fishing has been poor and few anglers are bothering to fish it.  With the heat coming this week more fishing will go to the twilight times and at night. Anglers may want to explore some nightfishing opportunities. 

Upriver the wading will be good and more pleasant at this time of year. Smallmouth bass are willing as are bream.

Potomac River

Aqua Land (301-259-0572) reported that conditions have been really windy. However, some perch have been active for nightcrawlers. Catfish are hitting everything and a few croaker are now being caught. Skates are in the area too. No reports of bluefish or rockfish. 

Motts Landing (540-786-8989) reported the best action is for catfish and white perch. Chicken liver is the best bait right now. Other species are not being caught but then again the wind has kept anglers off the reservoir. 

Lake Anna—reports put striper in schools downlake now on flats. Bass moved to deeper water. 

Ponds were reported to be good for crappie and bream. Bass are in the summer pattern and after plastics and minnows. 

Saltwater

Ken’s Tackle (540-898-1011) reported croaker at Tappahannock. 

We also have reports of great Spanish mackerel action around Cape Henry on spoons while trolling. Sheepshead and spadefish are also hitting down around the CBBT. Some really nice flounder are hitting all over the lower bay. Bluefish are in the area in force now and the best fishing is yet to come. Some smaller blues are hitting near Smith Point as well. 

Offshore the wind kept the fleet in until Sunday. However, the last time anglers were out they encountered some tuna.

Hunting

Squirrel season ended but managed hunts and the deadlines to apply will be coming up for public lands next month. Look for good groundhog action to continue.
