Bass are holding on points and chasing shad in the coves. Bass are being caught in good numbers, and are hitting aggressively. Grubs are taking bass in the 1-3 pound class, while 1/2 ounce willow-leaf spinnerbaits are taking the better fish. Anchor off a point and cast to shallow water or the edge of any brush, slow-rolling the spinnerbait near the bottom. Zara Spooks are taking fish when fished parallel to red mud banks and rock bluffs.

Crappie are still stacked on brushpiles and fishing for them will get better as the water temperatures cool.

Stripers are showing at the mouth of Bluestone Creek and around the mouths of the Dan and Staunton Rivers. Lots of stripers are breaking the surface, but not on a regular schedule.
