Memorial Day trip to Beaverdam Reservoir

I've been talking to Plan B (Brian Bellas) as he has been hammering the fish at the reservoir. We have been talking about getting out there and giving it a shot but the only question is when.

Perhaps a few others might want to join in when we go. I suggest that we fish the reservoir one day over the Memorial Day weekend.

Sun May 25- PM
Mon May 26- AM

We can fish shoreline or from boats (canoes and kayaks). I have an extra canoe and extra kayak…1st come 1st served.

If this sounds like something you want to do, let me know and I will set it up.

Re: Memorial Day trip to Beaverdam Reservoir

Hi Guys,

I've been lurking around a bit since the beginning of the year. I found your site searching for some fishing opportunities in the area. While I'm relatively new to the area (less than a year), I've been bass fishing for the better part of my life in one way or another. I did quite a bit of LMB and SMB fishing in NJ, NY and CT and spent the last 17 years on the NJ shore mostly chasing striped bass. I’m having a blast rediscovering my freshwater roots here in NOVA.

Since flippin4it called me out by name assuming I was registered here, I thought it was a good time to register and introduce myself. I've been fishing the area since March and while it started off slow, I've been having some decent results at the reservoir. While I haven't had a day there with a large number of fish, the quality has gotten better and last weekend I CPR'd a 4lb 13oz LMB at the res.

I pretty sure I've run into a few of you there in passing. I saw redskinsfan360 putting back in the water in his awesome homemade boat as I was taking my kayak out a few weeks ago and pretty sure that I saw PlanB fishing his way around the west bank when the water was still low. I fish from a Native Watercraft ultimate 12.

I'm not sure if I can make it next Monday since I'll be up in NJ for the weekend, but I look forward to meeting more of you guys and sharing some info on the local fish. I'm dying to get back out on the Potomac to chase some smallies when the river comes back down. I'd be interested in meeting up with anyone who is willing to share some experience on the river.

Cheers.

Paul

Welcome aboard. I will be out of town for the Beaverdam outing also.  We will have to arrange a float on the Potomac next.

Re: Memorial Day trip to Beaverdam Reservoir

Welcome Paul!

We will definitely be doing a float on the river for smallies. Also, check out the FISHING CLUBS & IMPORTANT WEBSITES section. The Potomac River Smallmouth Club always has trips planned. Next meeting is Wednesday the 28th.

Re: Memorial Day trip to Beaverdam Reservoir

Thanks for the Welcome Ernie.

I saw their website a while back. Looks like a good resource, I'll check them out. I'm not sure if I can make that meeting but will be sure to check one out in the future.

Also guys, I'm looking doubtful for Monday but there will be a bunch of guys there from another website. I've fished with a few of them and they are great guys and have a real passion for the sport. Have fun with them and catch a bunch.

I was out for a few hours yesterday and fishing was tough. I only managed 2 small fish between 1.5 and 2#. I had a pattern dialed in over the past 3 weeks there and that was non-existent. Hopefully it was just one tough day and they transition through post spawn quickly.

Welcome and we look forward to seeing you on Monday!

It's pretty cool cool that two different groups are planning an outing on the same day at the same place!!

Re: Memorial Day trip to Beaverdam Reservoir

O'dark 30 it is!! The Fish-A-Palooza team is getting there at 0530! Sunrise is at 0549......I think that is when Curly will get there too. My plan is to be there at 0600. 

Who needs a seat? I have an extra canoe and kayak. Bring PFD's and plenty of water!!

See you on Monday!!

Re: Memorial Day trip to Beaverdam Reservoir

Hello, I am also from the other forum that Paul Naj and flippin4it used to organize another trip. This is pretty cool that two groups are getting together at the same time and place. Hopefully with all these people we'll be able to hone in on a good pattern.

Pacemaker, I know I am a new member and don't know you personally yet, but as of now, I am boatless for this trip. If the offer for the use of the kayak or canoe still stands and you feel comfortable allowing someone you don't know to use it, then I'd love to take you up on the offer, otherwise I'll be walking the bank by myself. If you don't feel comfortable with that, don't worry about it, it probably wouldn't be my first choice either.

You guys have a great forum here, I hope to meet up with some of you and fish some of the spots around the area.

It's a nation-wide forum, but we have a lot of members from the NoVA area that post in the "Southeast Bass Fishing" section.

This is going to be pretty cool if the turn out from both forums is as big as expected........Someone hook Dominion Dan up with a seat or boat......He needs to be there.

DD,

I will let you know about what will be available by Sunday PM. I have no problem with  you using either one. Do you have a life jacket you can use?

Welcome to our board!!
