Bass:

Bass fishing is not up to speed yet. We need to get the water temp down to the low 70's for the start of GOOD fall fishing. My best action has been on the Deep Creek Mt floating worms. I use them in a shakey head presentation using Deep Creek 1/4oz to 3/8 oz heads. Some of the best fishing has been up lake around grass and rocks. Use a senko with just a 4.0 hook in the grass.

Best Baits Best Areas of Lake Best Depth
Shakey Head Mid-Up 8' to 12'
Senko Mid-Up over grass
Striper

Schools of striper can be found between the 208 & first bridges in each river. Find the fish on your electronics and get over them with live bait on down lines. You will also find them at Dike 3. Early morning and late evening can produce some top water action. Most of these fish are not keepers. Trolling is also producing fish between the bridges

Best Baits Best Areas of Lake Best Depth
Live Bait up 20'-30'
Top Water down top
Swim Baits up 20'-25'
Crappie

Crappie are on the up lake bridges, deep docks, trash piles and rock piles. Most are in the 10' to 20' range. I like to use a small minnow with a slip bobber. I've also been catching some on 2" grubs.

This month is all about the early transition from summer to fall. All species of fish will begin to cover more water and feed a little more aggressively than they did during the heat of the summer. Look for great top water action and shallower feeding habits as the water temperatures begin to lower.

Bass:

September totally changes the playing field when it comes to bass fishing. In the past month most fish have been in deeper brush and channel edges seeking comfortable water temps and feeding sporadically. As September sets in the fish will begin to move a little more and suspend over or near slightly shallower structure with bait present. Depending on how quickly the water cools they will start hitting spinner baits and medium range crank baits more readily as well as slow sinking weightless baits like Senkos and Flukes. September will offer some great days of largemouth fishing but it can be very difficult to adapt to the changes of late Summer/ early Fall.


Striper

The linesiders in Lake Anna will be in the beginning stages of all out mayhem on resident baitfish. They’ll start to push up on very shallow flats and points in the mornings chasing gizzard and threadfin shad. Fan cast large shallow flats with super spooks and large poppers for the first 2 hours of light. Move out towards deeper water as the sun gets up. Once the fish have moved out of shallow water, use your sonar to locate schools of fish. You can use live bait if you are proficient in finding, catching and keeping it alive. Or you can jig ½ oz to 1 ounce spoons and blade baits in the school. You can also troll crank baits and swim baits with great success.

Crappie

Nice size slabs can be found all over the lake. Bridges, docks, brush piles, and beaver huts, are home to thousands of Crappie. One method is to try casting grubs, tubes, and beetle spins as close to whatever cover you are targeting. Another approach is to use a slip bobber above a #6 gold hook tipped with a small minnow.
