Beaverdam lake Virginia

Recommended Posts

my friend got bit by a copperhead on both legs while fishing there last year so if you do, be careful. I've never fished it though.

I fished it with a buddy the first weekend in April.  We did okay but not great.  I caught 4 with the largest going about 3lbs.  My buddy doesn't fish much so he took a chance and didn't buy a fishing license.  Of course a couple game wardens stop us that day and give him a ticket.  They were really cool guys though.  Otherwise we had a good time and I'm sure since it has warmed up, the fishing is probably better.

i use to like going there but there is so much grass there it is hard to fish for me. If your close to suffolk  i would reccomend trying the lonestar lakes. We just started fishing there and it is a great place

I'm not sure.  I think it varies depending on the county's court costs.  He did says since we were cooperative, if my buddy bought a license and came to court he would recommend dropping the ticket.  He would still be stuck with court costs though.  He lives and hour and a half away so I think he's just going to pay it.  Once I find out, I'll reply to this thread and let you know.

Beaverdam can be very productive on some days but the lake is known to change patterns on a daily basis. Hold some pretty big fish (and ticks) if you can find them.

Last year, I had a lot of luck working the submerged rocks with a tube or fat ika but this was during the summer. I haven't been out there in awhile.
