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 upper 60’s in the main lake and higher in the
creeks on Wednesday (4/28/2021). The lake level was about 2 inches above
the top of the dam. The water was medium brown and very slightly cloudy in
the central lower lake, with more cloudy water on windy shorelines and in
some creeks.

Most blue cats and bullheads were on flats, along drop-offs, and in channels
in the main lake. When active, cats were hitting live minnows and cut bait.
Crappie were in multiple patterns. Some crappie were in creeks, usually in
deeper areas near wood cover. Other crappie were near creek mouths and on
flats or channel edges in the main lake, frequently around cypress trees or
wood cover. Active fish were hitting live minnows, tubes, curly tail grubs,
and small swim baits. White and yellow perch were scattered or in loose
aggregates on flats and channel edges in the main lake with occasional fish
in creeks and when active were hitting small live minnows, swim baits, and
jigs. Some bluegill, shellcrackers, and fliers were starting to filter back
into creeks and onto main lake shorelines and were hitting live worms, Nikko
nymphs, and small swimbaits. Pickerel and bass were in creeks and around
cypress trees, on flats, and on channel edges in the main lake. When
active, bass and pickerel were hitting live minnows, spinnerbaits, swim
baits, stick worms, crank baits, jerk baits, and jigs.
