Outdoor Report - July 9, 2014

Fishing is tougher during the day. Fish early and late, and fish often. The fish are definitely biting! Over the weekend, the Rappahannock was high and muddy, but by press time, the river was settling down.

FISHING
Rappahannock River — Catfish are biting well on the Rappahannock River right now. However, the biggest fish are biting solely at night and on fresh-cut bait or eels. Eating-sized fish will hit during the day, but that can be miserable unless you are fishing in the shade. Try cutbait or minnows for the larger fish, and worms or chicken liver for the smaller fish.

Hot temps equal hot action for Rapp cats

If last week was any indication, the catfish spawn must be ending. Two young men, Elijah and Rex, were up bright and early to beat the heat and join me on a trip to the Rapp to pound some old catfish water in search of some action. We put in at Wilmont Landing before the sun was too high in the sky. With temps predicted to reach into the upper 90s and the heat index to creep towards 110, I wanted to be off the water by 10 AM for sure. Being in a metal boat in the bright sunshine in those temps will fry any brain cells you might have, and I did not want to lose what few I had left.

Happy Independence Day! Please remember those who gave so much for us. I find it really interesting that we live just up the road from the stirrings of our nation’s birth, Leedstown.

FISHING
Rappahannock River – We heard very little about the Rappahannock River again this week. Anecdotal reports did show that bass were hitting plastics along wood structure, and catfish are game if you have fresh bait.

FISHING
Fishing continues to be good, although it has gone into a summer pattern.

Rappahannock River — We heard very little about the Rappahannock this week. What we did hear is that bream in the tributaries are reportedly biting and that catfish have come out of their spawning lull and are hungry for cut bait and eels.

Take care of your hunting dog this summer

During the summer, it is tempting to not work your four-legged hunting partner and let them lie in the shade. After all, with temperatures nearing 100 degrees last week, it would seem almost cruel to give your dog a workout, right? I disagree, with some exclusions, of course.

Fishing is quite good, other than a small lull in some catfishing.
