Fishing reports are few and scattered, although what we hear is quite good. Hunting for small game is very good with plenty of squirrels and rabbits. Foxes are abundant too. Deer hunters are not faring as well as they would like. Warm weather, acorn abundance and a lackluster rut in many areas seems to have a damper on the hunting for many.
Aqualand (301-259-0572) reported slow fishing activity by customers. They did not hear of any fishing activity worth reporting.
Ken’s Tackle (540-898-1011) reported lots of crappie hitting in the creeks. Minnows are selling like crazy.
Ken’s reported continued good crappie action using minnows.
Lake Anna—Fishing for crappie and striper are the main attraction. Fish under birds with cranks or spoons for stripers and fish deeper structure near flats for crappie. Use a fish finder to locate fish.
Ponds—Fishing was very good for small bass and slab crappie. Use minnows or bright jigs.
Captain Ryan Rogers (804-580-0245) reports continued great live bait action for rockfish. He also started trolling and finding large fish including a 44-inch fish this past week.
