Outdoors Report - March, 21, 2012

We start our weekly fishing report this year with a BANG! Fishing is quite good all around although the weather sure is fickle.

Rappahannock River

Overview: Fishing is quite good but still can be sporadic. White perch have been hit or miss. When they are on they are HOT though but when they are OFF you need to

move or wait them out to the next tide change.

Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reported great white perch fishing in the river near Hicks Landing. Use bloodworms and red wigglers to get your next white perch meal. Some yellow perch were also reported but they are winding down. Crappie are turning up in the river near structure. Use minnows.

Lil Falls Market on Rt. 3—They are selling minnows and reported some white perch action as far up as Old Mill Park. Fish deeper holes.

Pern’s Supermarket (775-7817) told us they are stocking up on bait for the year and have worms now. They also heard of white perch in the river now.

Potomac River

Ken’s Tackle reported that Aquia Creek was hot for crappie and yellow perch. Use minnows to catch them.

There are plenty of catfish in the river now. Cutbait is a good bait to use.

Ponds—

Lake Anna is reportedly giving up some nice striper uplake and crappie are also hitting minnows too. Striper are hitting uplake and bass are really turning on as well. Jerkbaits in the shallows have taken some real nice fish.

Bass are hitting in private ponds on minnows and spinnerbaits and jerkbaits. Fish slow and be patient. The fish are hungry.

Lake Orange-Miss Donna at Ken’s Tackle weighed in a 9 pound bass caught from Orange. Crappie are also hitting out there.

Saltwater

The spring striper season in the bay opens April 21st. 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.

Kid’s Trout Fishing Day   March 24th 9AM-3PM

Old Cossey Pond in Fredericksburg , Adjacent to Kenmore Park

Ages 12 and under Call 540-899-4169 for details

This is a great event for kids. Check the weather and dress accordingly. The trout bite in spurts but earlier and later seem to be better than the middle of the day. On overcast days they bite quite well. Use Berkley Powerbait, spinners, small spoons or nightcrawlers or red wigglers. It gets busy at the pond but people come and go and spots do open up.
