Inclement weather keeps many anglers at home
With the weather less than ideal for being out on the water lately, fishing reports continue to be far and few between.
"There is a lot of feeding activity in the creeks with more small speckled trout being caught than we have seen in years," according to Jerry Thrash with Queens Creek Outfitters, Cobbs Creek. "Some larger fish are mixed in."
Many blues have been caught while anglers were fishing for spot and specks, he added.
Large spot are abundant as are pan-size gray trout. "Both are biting around Gwynn’sIsland, on the Spike and in the Piankitank and Rappahannock rivers," Thrash said.
Thrash said the store registered one citation speckled trout this week. It was caught in the Ware River by Keith Carter of Gloucester, and weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces.
