Happy Independence Day. Thank a veteran or service member for their sacrifice and enjoy our freedom. Most importantly plan to vote this fall!

Despite the heat the fishing has been pretty good. Check river levels before going out. 

Rappahannock River

Catfish are hitting nightcrawlers and cutbait up and down the river. Fish are small though. 

Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reports that there has been some decent catfish caught on cutbait and nightcrawlers near Lil Falls.

Rappahannock River

If the rain did not mess the river up too much (it was in fine shape at press time) the river ought to be in good shape for all fishing. 

Catfish were hitting well in the river but as usual they are generally small. Bass are available for those anglers fishing plastics or cranks near structure. Go for wood structure and creek mouths when you can on an outgoing tide. 

Some bowfin are available near the creek mouths and even in larger creeks.

Rappahannock River

Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reported that the river has been short on anglers. Many anglers are finding that the fishing has been poor and few anglers are bothering to fish it.  With the heat coming this week more fishing will go to the twilight times and at night. Anglers may want to explore some nightfishing opportunities.

The rivers were cleared up fairly well by the weekend but the fishing was not real good. Here is what we found out. 

Rappahannock River

Catfish are hitting nightcrawlers and shrimp near Lil Falls if you are so inclined to fish near the sewage treatment plant. Downriver, catfish are also doing the same near Hopyard and Port Royal. Bass angling on Saturday was tough but plastics near creek mouths and crankbaits did catch a few fish. 

Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reports that there has not been much action on the Rappahannock River.

Refuge’s kids’ fishing Day was a huge success

 

 On Saturday, June 2; 24 local kids and their families participated in a fun-filled day of fishing at the 11th annual Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge Annual Kids’ Fishing Day. Thanks to our sponsor: Rappahannock Wildlife Refuge Friends Group for helping to make this a really successful event.

The event was held at Wilna Pond, located on Wilna Road off of Sandy Lane in Warsaw, Virginia. In addition to fishing, there were fun learning activities, prizes, and a free lunch. Every child at the event received a goody bag with special souvenirs. Participants also learned about fishing ethics and boating safety, fish habitat and identification, knot tying, and practiced their casting techniques before heading out to Wilna Pond to fish. The event promoted fishing as a fun, family-oriented recreational activity that will leave participants with memories that will last a lifetime.

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.
