Outdoors Report - May 30, 2012

 

Fishing was reportedly slow this week, which we expected due to high water, unsettled weather and muddy conditions. 

Rappahannock River

Little Falls’s (540-656-8696) reported catfish action remains quite good for pan sized fish. Anglers are finding pretty much any bait will work. It takes some work to wade through the smaller fish to find 

good sized fish. 

Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reports that catfish are biting very well in the river. The river was high through Sunday and muddy through Saturday 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. 

Potomac River

Lil Falls reported catfish are the main attraction. Some bass near the grass beds are hitting. 

Aqualand (301-259-0572) is telling us that catfish are taking all kinds of bait off their beach still. The bigger news is that croaker were caught near Swan Point in deeper water at night. No fish were reported during the day though. 

Snakeheads are being caught in all the tidal creeks on topwater. Some anglers are arrowing them. 

Ponds/Lakes

Mott’s Run Reservoir (540-786-8989) reported a fluke of a catch. A cutbait users fishing the bottom hooked a 3.5 pound bass. Another angler took some nice catfish on redworms in Turkey Run Cove.

Ponds are probably the best bet for the next few days. Bass are hitting topwater during low light quite. Some decent bream are still hitting well. But, the summer pattern is kicking in now with temps in the 80’s. 

Saltwater

Captain Ryan Rogers (www.fishmidnightsun.com) at 804-580-0245 reported some decent striper angling the past few days. 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 still prowling the islands near the CBBT, bigger blues are near Virginia Beach, croaker are at Waterview and points south and some specks are hitting on the Eastern Shore. Some cobia are showing up far down the bay too.
