Lake Anna Fishing Report

Brought To You By Highpoint Marina.

OCTOBER 2019

Largemouth Bass – Up lake region continues to produce the best catches. This area has plenty of willow grass, rocks, docks and stumps, especially above the first two bridges in both the North Anna arm and Pamunkey Branch. The lake is low so there is not as much shallow water cover.  Pitch small plastic worms to docks (4” Berkley Power worms) and jig as it falls. A ¼ oz. Tiger Shad spinnerbait in the Lake Anna Special format is excellent for these areas as well, retrieved around docks and grass. This is also a great time of year for lip-less crank baits such as Rat-L-Traps.   Mid lake bass are moving to the backs of creeks like Marshall, Pigeon, Mitchell, Sturgeon and Contrary. Each will have fish in them somewhere.  Use the same patterns as up lake fish including suspending jerkbaits, soft plastic jerkbaits, and swimbaits.  Some topwater action on Pop Rs and buzzbaits.

Striped Bass – There are fish breaking just about every morning in all three sections of the lake. Have a small topwater you can walk tied on and keep your eyes peeled. (Zara Spooks or Chug Bugs).  Birds are beginning to show up,  but they are  not much help yet. Fishing has been slow, however, fish have been caught in the splits area most evenings.  Trolling is still effective, as well as,  live bait, Sassy shads, sea shads, and Toothe-ache spoons.

Crappie – Lots of fish around bridges and docks, as long as you stay in at least 10-15’ of water.  Small and medium minnows and 2” grubs are working the best.
