The Virginia Anglers Club’s small but very enthusiastic expedition to Chickahominy Lake set out from Ed Allen’s Boats and Bait at 9:00 AM on Saturday (5/28/2016). 
Water temperatures were in the mid to high 70’s in the main lake in the morning, ranging into the low 80’s by early afternoon.  The lake level was about six inches above the top of the dam.  The water was moderately brown and slightly turbid in the lower lake, which is a bit less clear than is typical for this time of year.  The weather was totally clear and it was a beautiful day with relatively light winds. 

Bluegills were in loose clusters on the banks, interspersed with a scattering of other species, all of which hit a variety of small jigs on light spinning gear.  Karen Anderson, Carolyn Conway, and Art Conway released 65 bluegill, 1... (Read More)

The river had a good water level and flow after recent rains. This provided lots of nice deep holes, runs and riffles for the group to fish in the upper end of the DH section.
Trip Highlights:
  • ‚ÄčBob Brown and his guest Bill Early were schooled by a local lad in the proper bait to use to catch trout from a feeder stream of the South River. The answer? Corn! The boy had pictures on his cell phone to back up his boasting. Bob and Bill fished streamers in the hole that the boy showed them but the trout weren’t hungry after eating corn... (Read More)
