Occoquan shows action - Ranger Smokey Davis says the bass fishing is fine. Local bass club contestants find the majority of their fish using Brush Hogs or creature baits pitched into deep mainlake blowdowns.
“The hot weather has made channel catfish more active. Chicken livers and clam snouts are prime baits,” says Davis, who adds that the crappie bite has slowed a bit but pier anglers enjoy some success with small minnows that are fished under a bobber.
Critical perch meeting - If you are a yellow perch fishing fan, please try to attend a special Maryland DNR meeting Monday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Tawes Building in Annapolis. Commercial fishermen are trying to get a bigger share of the perch fishery, and sport anglers must show the recreational community deserves the lion’s share. Maryland fishery managers say they want to hear from you, so don’t disappoint them. Recreational anglers should attend this meeting and tell the DNR managers what they want. Contact Rick Morin at email@example.com or call 410/260-8272 by mid-morning Monday if you plan to attend, so there will be enough handouts and chairs.
About our fishing reports - Some of our readers say they can’t find the large, detailed fishing report at www.washingtontimes.com/sports. It runs every Thursday under “Weekend Fishing Report” and stays up through the weekend. The version that appears in our print editions is also on the Web site, but it usually mentions the name “Gene Mueller” along with a headline suggesting what kind of action is best this week.
cLook for Gene Mueller’s Outdoors column Sunday and Wednesday and his Fishing Report on Thursday, only in The Washington Times. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
