I go just about every weekend. On August 9th we caught a total of 9 Large mouth bass the largest being about 18\" and weighing about 2lbs. We fished reeds and rock walls with a purple texas rigged worm and a water mellon colored texas rigged salamander. Slow in the summer but have never once been skunked there in the 20 years I have been fishing it.

Pretty slow today for everyone. Talking to people at the boat launch, no one caught anything. The highlight of my day came from some perch caught on green jigs. Also, we broke down and tried from some catfish using blood bait. Not even a bite. Hoping that when the weather warms up, there will be more activity.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
76 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.
Occoquan Reservoir Smallmouth Bass Rating:
2.5
Occoquan Reservoir Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.
Occoquan Reservoir Walleye Rating:
2.5
Occoquan Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.
