Outdoors Report - June 6, 2012

 

Torrential rains keep messing up the river for us by the weekend but further downriver and in ponds the action is decent. 

Rappahannock River

Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reports that catfish are biting very well in the river. The river was high and muddy through Monday AM. Once the water clears the bass action will pick back up and the smallie and bream action upriver will work itself back into shape. 

There were reports of striper being caught at the City dock. Catfish were hitting worms more than anything else. 

Potomac River

Lil Falls reported great snakehead action.

Aqualand (301-259-0572) is telling us that catfish are the main attraction this year and anglers have no shortage of them. Some croaker are biting downriver and mostly at night. 

Plenty of snakeheads are being caught in all the tidal creeks on topwater. Some anglers are arrowing them. Some weigh up to and over 15 pounds! They are VERY good eating too. 

Ponds/Lakes

Mott’s Run Reservoir (540-786-8989) had nearly 200 kids show up for their annual Fishing Derby this past weekend. 

Ponds are probably the best bet for the next few days. Bass are hitting topwater and plastics in ponds. Some still have eggs in them but most have spawned long ago. Bream are hitting crickets and hoppers too. 

Chris McCotter- reported some decent bass angling on soft plastics and jerkbaits despite a lot of boater traffic. mccotterslakeanna.blogspot.com

Saltwater

Captain Ryan Rogers (www.fishingmidnightsun.com, 804-580-0245) reported that the chumming is going well. His clients have often boated their limit of rockfish. Some bluefish are beginning to mix in and some nice croaker are rounding out some trips too. Capt. Ryan will be moving down to Virginia beach in two weeks for a few weeks of inshore/offshore fishing. Call if you want to see about a slot for some big game species of even some inshore fishing down there. He has a Mate In Training (MIT) program open at Smith Point later this summer for young anglers. Last time I checked he had a few openings left. It is a great program he created and an excellent way for the younger kids to learn how to really fish, run a boat and put out lines etc…

Further down the bay, redfish are being caught near the CBBT, bigger blues are near Virginia Beach, croaker are at Waterview and points south and once this torrential rain stops we might get some decent flounder action going on.
