Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – November 11, 2020

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 low to mid 60’s in the central lower lake on
Wednesday (11/11/2020). The lake level was about 2 inches above the top of
the dam and the water was light to medium brown and clear in the central
lake, with much more murky water near windy shorelines.

Most blue cats and bullheads were along drop-offs and in channels in the
main lake. When active, cats were hitting live minnows and cut bait. Most
crappie were on deeper main lake flats or on channel edges, frequently near
brush piles, and some schools were becoming moderately active again. Active
crappie were hitting live minnows, Wright Bait Co. and Southern Pro curly
tail jigs, small tubes, Kalin crappie scrubs, and small swim baits. White
and yellow perch were scattered or in loose aggregates on deep flats and
channel edges in the main lake and when active were hitting small live
minnows, swim baits, and jigs. Larger bluegill and shellcracker were in 5
to 12 feet of water on channel edges, frequently on wood cover, and were
mostly inactive. When they have been active, bluegill and shellcracker were
hitting live worms, Nikko nymphs, and small swimbaits. Pickerel and bass
were located along a few shorelines, around cypress trees, on flats, and on
channel edges, especially near the mouths of creeks. When active, bass and
pickerel were hitting live minnows, spinnerbaits, swim baits, stick worms,
crank baits, jerk baits, and jigs.

Fishing with Capt. Conway, Bill Marley and Bill Caldwell had 2 bluegill, 23
crappie, and 2 largemouth bass. Tom Porter had 1 bluegill, 22 crappie, and
1 white perch.
