Outdoors Report - April 3, 2013

We are finally getting some decent weather, but it is still unsettled. A recent newscast pointed out that last year in March we had 24 days that registered temperatures over 64 degrees. This year we had none over that temperature in March.

The Rappahannock River was in much better shape this week. Winter Harbor Seafood reported that an angler caught some very nice white perch in the Dogue area of the river. Five were reportedly citation size perch.

Annual kids free fishing Trout Day at Cossey Pond draws 60+

Despite the rain and cool temperatures, 60-plus kids turned out to fish in Old Cossey Pond in Fredericksburg on Saturday. VDGIF stocked the pond with rainbow, brown and a few golden trout the night before, and the pond was closed until the kids were able to send Berkley Trout Powerbait into the water from the perimeter banks on Saturday morning. Some kids threw brightly colored spinners and hooked fish and others simply

Outdoors Report - March 20, 2013

Overview— Cold rain messed the rivers up again and angler participation was minimal. However, the crowds in local fishing aisles at stores picked up. Anglers are just waiting for warm weather to sneak out and toss in a line.
