Shore fishing Nothern Va help???

Recommended Posts



New to this forum and looking for a little insight on finding some new locations to shore fish in Northern Va. I do not have access to a boat so I know that limits some of my fishing locations . I usually fish Leesylvania State Park from the long pier but that place gets really crowded and I am tired of standing shoulder to shoulder with other people. I primarily go after catfish and while the lines are out fish for bass along the bank waiting for a bite on my main lines. I will be going to Germantown Lake this Saturday with my brother to try them out since they are not to far from where I live in Manassas and have heard some good things about both their bass and catfish their. Any advice on some new locations to try would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome.  I'm not going to be much help with the shore fishing.  I spent some time looking in past years, but with little luck.  You can rent boats at a few places, however: Hunting Run, Fountainhead, Pohick, one or more marinas on Anna, Brittle, kayak at Fountainhead or Occoquan Regional park, ....there's a park up from the city on the Potomac that used to rent boats or canoes and kayaks....and one or two others I can't think of at the moment.
