Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – February 10, 2021

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 lower 40’s throughout the lake on Wednesday
(2/10/2021). The lake level was about 5 inches above the top of the dam and
the water was light brown. Water in the lower lake was clear to slightly
cloudy and cloudiness increased farther up the lake.

Temperature fluctuations over the last week and a half have slowed activity
of most fish species. 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, channel edges,
or in channels. Most schools were not very active, but occasional more
active fish were hitting live minnows, small swim baits on jigs or drop shot
rigs, and small blade baits. White and yellow perch were scattered or in
loose aggregates on deep flats and channels in the main lake and when active
were hitting small live minnows, swim baits, and jigs. Larger bluegill and
shellcracker were in channels, frequently on wood cover, and were mostly
inactive. When 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. When
active, bass and pickerel were hitting live minnows, spinnerbaits, swim
baits, stick worms, crank baits, jerk baits, blade baits, and jigs.
