Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – November 4, 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 50’s (a 10 degree drop from last
Wednesday) in the central lower lake on Wednesday (11/4/2020). The lake
level was about 8 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 were becoming active again after the rapid temperature drop
at the end of last week. 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, Tom Porter had 21 crappie, 3 white perch, and 1
largemouth bass.
