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

"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...

 VDGIF Blue Catfish Information Session - May 28
Posted on 05/06/2015
The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is holding an informal information session starting at 6:00 PM the evening of May 28th at the Charles City office located at 3801 John Tyler Memorial Highway, Charles City, VA.

"Blue catfish have for many years provided a world class trophy fishery, that fishery is in decline, and will likely continue to decline to some unknown point. After four decades this population has past the post-introduction boom of rapid expansion and very fast individual growth rates. It has now entered a period of decline towards an as yet unknown equilibrium state. Individual growth rates have declined significantly, and continue to decline, and we recently documented dramatic declines in abundance. So, times are changing, and are likely to continue to change in the foreseeable future." Bob Greenlee, VDGIF Eastern Regional Aquatic Resources Manager
