If you have a friend that needs humbling, do yourself a favor (and them): introduce them to spring gobbler hunting. You will fix your problem and theirs in a hurry.

We are finally getting some decent weather. Fishing should really ramp up this week.
The Rappahannock River was in much better shape this week. White perch were hitting well at Hopyard last week. Lil Falls Market on Rt. 3 reported good white perch angling at Hicks’ Landing. They also said the catfish

Four KGHS NJROTC shooters headed to Anniston, Alabama for the All Service National Match held March 21st to the 23rd. All four shooters did well but one came away with a national title. Hunter Cushman, a junior at KGHS and a member of the KGHS NJROTC Rifle Team, had the best match of his life.

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.

The weather certainly has a damper on angling for many people, but on warm days the fish seem to be biting.
The Rappahannock River was clear but with the rain and snow on Sunday and Monday it will be muddy by mid to late week. Hopefully it will clear before Easter. However, Ken’s Tackle in Fredericksburg reported catfish up to 10 pounds at the City Dock. There were white perch at Hicks and Little Falls too. Remember that a herring moratorium (NO TAKING HERRING) is in place. Once the river goes down things will pick up.

This cold spell has been quite frustrating to say the least. About the time we get a somewhat warm day, the weather turns sour again. However, rest assured that the fish will start to bite more consistently.
Meanwhile, look for shad and herring (no take on herring) to arrive in Fredericksburg in the next two weeks. The peak will likely occur mid April. Small spoons, jigs with bright colors and even darts will take fish.
