What We Catch and When
In early spring there is great speckled trout fishing in the Elizabeth River Hot Ditch. In the rivers of the Albemarle Sound there is abundant crappie fishing and striped bass fishing can be excellent in both the rivers and the sound. In spring largemouth bass fishing can also be good.
In summer I fish for croaker, drum, white perch, flounder, stripers and largemouth bass.
In fall Striped Bass fishing picks back up and it is not uncommon to have 100 fish days with stripers schooling in the Albemarle Sound and its tributaries. This can be great fishing for fly fisherman as well. The speckled trout also start showing back up in the Elizabeth River Hot Ditch.
Striped bass in the rivers and the sound can be excellent along with yellow perch. The trout fishing in the Elizabeth River can also be great.
In the spring you can often find these guys all throughout the tributaries of the Albemarle Sound.
