Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – February 6, 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 mid 40’s in the lower main lake and as high as the
low 50’s in some parts of some creeks on Wednesday (2/6/2019). The lake
level was about an inch above the top of the dam. The water was light brown

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

active were hitting live minnows, small swim baits, and small jigs. Most

creeks on sunny days, while other bass and pickerel were on deeper flats,
