Bottom Composition

14 posts in this topic

Is there a link someone could give me to a Table Rock map that has bottom composition detail? I have tried to use the one I've seen discussed on here a few times through the arc gis software or whatever that is but I wasn't able to see anything detailing the types of composition. I keep seeing/hearing people discuss fishing gravel points, but what I have been coming across is what I would consider chunk rock. I have been fishing almost exclusively Cape Fair due to less pleasure boaters, so I guess the gravel may all just be farther south. Any information would be appreciated. 

Thanks

Just look at the banks and that should tell you what kind of rock is below the water. Pea gravel isn't hard to find but majority of it is around mid lake to the dam area of Table Rock.

Thanks. I figured it was few and far between, but I don't believe I have came across any between Bridgeport and a little ways up into James River or Flat creek.

Google maps and look at the satellite images... will help a bunch

Google maps recent satellite update is from when the water was really low so you should b able to find what your looking for easy and if you fishing cape fair and wanting to get into pea gravel launch in shell knob at campbel point or. Big bay if you keep your fishing early morning or late day and focus on weekdays you will b able to dodge most of the pleasure terds 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😅

I guess my problem is distinguishing between gravel and the dirt on google maps. Is there very much gravel north of bridgeport? Because it almost all looks like dirt to me.

I have not fished much in that area.. but looking at the map I think the brown is dirt.. the tan shoreline is pea gravel and the grey is chunk rock.  

 

hope this helps
