Lake Anna July Fishing Report by Tyler Heuple


Lake Anna July Fishing Report

Water Temperatures: Mid 80’s

Water Clarity: Clear to Clear Stained

The large majority of fish are schooled up close to deep water in creeks or main lake flats, points, humps, brush, drop-offs, or around shade and SAV (sub-aquatic vegetation). This is the time of year when feeding windows seem most prevalent to me. You can be around the motherload, however if your timing is off, bites can be hard to come by. This time of year can be a lot about getting in the right rotation, covering water, or sitting on a large population of fish and waiting for them to fire up.

I always have a top water, swimbait, drop shot, and damiki rig tied on this time of year. I usually search for offshore schools, bait, or individual bigger fish suspending or relating to a specific piece of cover.  

You can still do some damage up shallow this time of year. Keep an eye out for shallow surface activity as the striper and largies push bait up shallow on flats near channels in the hot summer months.

Little secret: pay attention to pre-frontal conditions. The fishing before a good storm this time of year can be phenomenal. Especially during a major. 

The lake is busy this time of year. Be safe out there!

Tight Lines!
