Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – March 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 high 40’s in the lower main lake and the low to mid
50’s in the major creeks on Wednesday (3/13/2019). The lake level was a few
inches above the top of the dam. The water was light brown and slightly to
moderately cloudy in the central lake.

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. Some crappie were still on drop-offs and
in channels in the main lake, especially near wood cover, but others have
begun moving into the major creeks. Activity has varied with water
temperature stability, with active crappie hitting live minnows, Wright Bait
Co. and Southern Pro curlytail jigs, small tubes, Kalin crappie scrubs,
blade baits, jerk 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, Darryl Marshall and Clark Tracy had 3 crappie and
1 pickerel. Hugh Kent had 11 crappie. Tom Porter had 6 crappie, 1
pickerel, and 3 bass.
