Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – February 13, 2019

Capt. Art Conway of Conway’s River Rat Guide Service (804-514-1486) out of
Ed Allen’s Boats and Bait reported that Chickahominy Lake mid-day water
temperatures were in the middle 40’s in the lower main lake on Wednesday
(2/13/2019). The lake level was about 3 inches above the top of the dam.
The water was light brown and moderately cloudy in the central lake, with
very cloudy water near downwind shorelines.

Some blue cats and bullheads were along drop-offs and in channels in the
main lake while others had dispersed onto flats. When active, cats were
hitting live minnows and cut bait. Most crappie were on drop-offs and in
channels in the main lake, especially near wood cover, but should begin
moving into the major creeks soon. Activity has been varying with water
temperature stability, with the occasional active crappie hitting live
minnows, Wright Bait Co. and Southern Pro curlytail jigs, small tubes, Kalin
crappie scrubs, blade baits, and small swim baits. Yellow and white perch
were scattered or in loose aggregates on deep flats, drop-offs, and channels
in the main lake, with some yellow perch moving into major creeks. When
active, both perch species were hitting live minnows, small swim baits, and
small jigs. Most bluegill and shellcracker were along drop-offs or in
channels in the main lake and when active were tentatively hitting live
worms, Nikko nymphs, and small swimbaits. Some bass and pickerel were along
shorelines in coves and in creeks on sunny days, while other bass and
pickerel were on deeper flats, along drop-offs, or in channels in the main
lake. When active, bass and pickerel were hitting live minnows,
spinnerbaits, swim baits, stick worms, crank baits, jerk baits, and jigs.

Fishing with Capt. Conway, Tom Porter had 5 pickerel and 1 bass.
