 Pony Pasture Wade – Fun Fishing Outing (August 29)
Posted on 08/25/2015
Meet at the Pony Pasture parking lot for a morning of wade fishing. Light tackle fishing for sunfish and bass, or fly fishing, or cat fishing. Whatever your passion is. Closed toes shoes are best for wading (old tennis shoes are best). Don’t bring anything that can’t get wet. Pony Pasture offers pretty good fishing early in the morning, but as it gets into the late morning, people start to show up in droves. We’ll get in at 7:00 AM, get out at 11:00 AM and possibly grab a bite to eat afterwards so bring a change of clothes.
 
Questions: Contact Capt. Mike Ostrander

 Chickahominy Lake Expedition Fishing Report
Posted on 05/17/2015

Karen
"The Virginia Anglers Club’s small but very enthusiastic expedition to Chickahominy Lake set out from Ed Allen’s Boats and Bait at 9 AM on Saturday (5/9/2015).  Water temperatures were in the mid to high 70’s in the main lake and the lake level was a few inches above the top of the dam. The water was light to moderately brown and very slightly turbid in the lower lake, which is typical for this time of year.  The weather was cloudy and overcast when we set out, but cleared within an hour and we had 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 spin...

 The Economic Benefits of Cleaning Up the Chesapeake
Posted on 10/10/2014
This first-ever analysis released by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) finds that the economic benefits provided by nature in the Chesapeake Bay watershed will total $130 billion annually when the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint is fully implemented.
 
The peer-reviewed report, produced by economist Spencer Phillips and CBF Senior Scientist Dr. Beth McGee, compares the value of those benefits in 2009, the year before the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint began being implemented, to the benefits that can be expected as a result of fully implementing the Blueprint.
