It is springtime, and we do typically get some gully washers during the spring in Virginia. From a fisheries’ standpoint, a good soaking rain is not a bad thing. However, a gully washer that puts down inches of rain in a short period of time is an event of concern. Rain that comes down that hard leaves little time for the water to be absorbed into the ground. Instead, it rolls downhill, taking anything that floats or suspends with it.

Fishing continues to be quite good, particularly in ponds.
Turkey hunting slowed down for many. There are only a few days left. The good news is that there are plenty of hens, and hopefully plenty of nests being sat upon right now!

Until we had that three-day deluge that killed river fishing, angling was good. Now, the ponds and reservoirs have taken up the slack, and fishing is still good.

Fishing is very good now, and some saltwater action is picking up, too.

On April 21, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries’ (VDGIF) biologists met with Mark Fike and Matt Limbrick, leaders of the King George Outdoor Club, along with a few of the members and other youth in the county to learn how fisheries’ biologists sample a waterway for fish populations.
