As local anglers face a variety of autumnal options, they can begin by choosing to fish in the mountains or the tidal Potomac and Rappahannock rivers in the Maryland and Virginia flatlands this week.
Can you feel the difference in the air and water? Both are cooler and because of the ever-so-welcome autumn temperatures the fishing for certain species will improve with every passing day. This is particularly true of largemouth bass, stripers and blue catfish in Maryland and Virginia.
Here's a surprise for all who suppose that this week's fishing will have to be postponed because of the aftereffects of Hurricane Irene. From nearly every corner of our region comes word that the water is fine, certainly good enough for fishing and, if anything, the catches might be better than usual. It happens frequently after strong storms blow through our area.
Good news for Chesapeake Bay boaters who haven't enjoyed decent sea trout fishing in some years.
