Chickahominy Lake Fishing Report – March 29,

Art Conway (804-514-1486) out of Ed Allen’s Boats and Bait reported that
Chickahominy Lake mid-day surface water temperatures were in the lower
60’s in the central lower lake on Wednesday (3/29/2023), with higher
temperatures in some creeks. The lake level was about even with the top
of the dam. The water was light brown and clear to very slightly cloudy
at the surface in the central lower lake, but had a cloudy layer below 3
feet in many areas of the lake.

A few small blue cats, channel cats, and bullheads were scattered on
flats, along drop-offs, and in channels in the main lake and in some
creeks, and when active were hitting live minnows and cut bait. A
mixture of sizes of crappie were in channels and on flats in the upper
regions of major creeks and were moderately active. Crappie frequently
moved back out of the creeks or became inactive when cold fronts passed
through. Active crappie were hitting live minnows best, but were also
occasionally hitting tubes, curly tail grubs, small swim baits, and
small Gulp minnows. White perch were scattered or in loose aggregates
on deep flats, channel edges, and in channels in the main lake, and when
active were hitting small baits including live minnows, Gulp minnows,
and swim baits. Most bluegill and shellcracker were in channels in the
main lake and were inactive. Pickerel and bass were around cypress
trees, on deeper flats and channel edges, and in channels in the main
lake. A few bass and pickerel were in channels or on flats in major
creeks. When active, bass and pickerel were hitting live minnows,
spinnerbaits, swim baits, stick worms, crank baits, and jerk baits.

Fishing with Art Conway, Garry Kwist had 1 shellcracker, 6 crappie, 1
blue cat, and 1 largemouth bass. Mike Thomas and Garrett Close 4
crappie, 3 pickerel, and 2 largemouth bass. Tom Porter had 13 crappie,
1 white perch, 1 blue cat, 2 pickerel, and 3 largemouth bass.
