Bank fishing east of Richmond, VA

Recommended Posts

I live between Sandston and New Kent. I’m looking for something close by that I can go to after work before it gets dark. I know of a few spots where I can fish the Chickahominy river but none of them seem ideal for bass. I know people don’t like giving out their spots but I’m ok if you need to put a burlap sack over my head and drop me off where the bass are haha. I’ve never caught a bass before. This is my first year using artificial lures. Caught a few small pan fish, bluegill and crappie but no bass yet.

Dorey Park Lake is pretty close to where I295 and I895 meet.

 

What area do you work in?  Maybe we can come up with something better between work and home.

Otis,

Please go to Introductions and introduce your self so we can know more about you.

 

Go to BPS, Green Top or your local tackle shop out your way and get a copy of the 2019 Freshwater Fishing and Boating booklet from the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. Look up the areas you want to fish and see what they have listed.

 

On Route 60 east of Providence Forge there is the "three lakes" subdivision. You can fish the pond along Route 60. Park in the parking lot and walk around the pond. It is east of the Food Lion. There is a large dam on Route 60 but if you look for it, along with the buildings and parking lot, you should find it easily.

 

Check out Google maps for ponds and then Google Earth to see the homes and businesses around them in Providence Forge and other areas. You will see many ponds on the Google map for Providence Forge. I don't know if the "three lakes" subdivision's three ponds are shown.

 

Good luck.

Welcome to the forums Otis.  Only listen to Sam about fishing, anything else you are taking your own life in your hands.  

 

Sam, I will be in Richmond tomorrow for the day and will call you about what we emailed back and forth today.

Oops!

 

It is NOT Providence Forge.

 

It is Bottom Bridge.

 

The pond is the Tom Brooks Lake and there are four ponds.

Have not been there in a number of years so I was confused. Sorry.

 

Check out Bottoms Bridge on Route 60 and you will see the ponds with the one by Route 60, on the same side of the road and east of the McDonalds and Food Lion.

 

Sorry, but glad to have figured it out.
