    Spent the day raking leaves instead of fishing, but I did find some time to study my charts in preparation of next time. How far down river can you go and still get good numbers of Blue Catfish? Downstream of the 301/Nice bridge or does the sainity get too high?

    It depends on time of year and rainfall. In the spring the fish are usually further upriver, even with the rain. Unless it has been really dry the rest of the year I will usually fish down to about Aquia creek. That far down can be hit or miss I am guessing due to salinity. If I start catching channels I move upriver. Quantico and up river is pretty safe all year regardless of rain.
