Outdoors Report - April 18, 2012

Rappahannock River
Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reported some shad caught above the fall line and at Old Mill. There were no reports of shad or herring at the City Dock.
Little Falls’s (540-656-8696) reported bass hitting well on the Rappahannock River. A few white perch were hitting too.
Catfish seem to be on the really small side on the river lately. Some anglers were catching plenty of crappie using minnows on the river out of Hopyard. One boat had 32 crappie caught.

Potomac River
Lil Falls reported great bass angling in the creeks and really good catfish action to include a 30-pound fish on cutbait. Snakeheads are getting ready to spawn. Look for them at the headwaters of creeks.
Aqualand (301-259-0572) is telling us that catfish are taking all kinds of bait off their beach now. Use cutbait to catch fish. Bloodworms are taking perch too.

Ponds/Lakes—
Mott’s Run Reservoir (540-786-8989) is reporting good Shellcracker action and some ring perch being caught. Windy conditions made it tough to fish the reservoir.
Lil Falls reported awesome action for bass and crappie at Fort AP Hill ponds. Minnows were working on the crappie. Plastic worms for the bass.
The bite at Lake Anna has been tough but fishing uplake seems to be best for crappie and bass right now. Check out McCotter’s blog at http://mccotterslakeanna.blogspot.com. Ponds were good for panfish using live bait and plastic worms this past week. Try weedlines and lily pads.

Saltwater
The spring striper season in the bay opens April 21.
Fishing ID Number REQUIRED in tidal water!
Don’t forget to get your Fisherman Identification Program Number. You need one in Virginia in tidal waters and in saltwater no matter if you are fishing for saltwater fish or not. Don’t get a ticket. They are being issued now! Maryland waters, to include the Potomac River, require one too. Just because you are registered, as a Virginia angler does not mean that FIP number is good in the Potomac River. Get a Maryland number separately. Virginia anglers can get one online by calling 800-723-2728. Or you can go online to register in Virginia, go to www.mrc.virginia.gov/FIP/index.shtm. For Maryland, go to www.dnr.maryland.gov/swregistry.asp.
