Lake Anna Fishing Report

Brought To You By Highpoint Marina.

JULY 2020

STRIPERS:    Great catches are coming from using live bait. My guides and I are using Blueback Herring rigged on downlines after we locate schools of Stripers. The action is fast and furious often having several fish hooked up at once! We have been concentrating our efforts 3 miles either side of the 208 bridge.  For anglers that prefer to troll use,  deep diving crankbaits such as Manns Stretch 20, Redfins, DD-22’s, Bandit Deep  or umbrella rigs.  Vertical jigging spoons will also work.   Work depths from 25-35 feet of water for best results.

   BASS:  Bass are in their summer patterns as well and the main lake has been producing good catches. Although most anglers look for structure in 10 to 20 foot depths, we have been catching numerous Bass in much deeper water.  Bass can be caught on topwater baits in the low light times of the day but once the sun gets bright they retreat to the depths usually on break lines nearby the channel where bait is present.

   CRAPPIE: Crappie are on every bridge on the lake. They are holding in the shade anywhere from 15 to 35 feet deep. We see schools on our Lowrance  side scans usually near the pilings nearest the channel.
