Anyone have any experience in this lake they are willing to share publicly. Heading down there for a tourney in a month and looking for any tips. Never fished in Virginia my entire life.

Lake Anna is a 13000 acre lake. Dominion power has a huge power plant there and creates a warm water discharge. There is a warm side and a cold side. The warm side is private, but it's my understanding that if you park at dike 3 you can carry your yak to the warm side and put in.
Many fisherman will go so far as to rent a house on the warm side for the tourneys to give themselves access. So if you're not fishing the warm side you will be at a disadvantage.
I'm assuming that this is a lmb tourney and not a striper tourney. If it's a striper tourney, you'll obviously want to fish the cold side. Best of luck.
If at first you don't succeed; skydiving is not for you.

Not much help, but...

I have family that lives on the lake. When I have been down there I was on a pontoon boat and unfortunately I was not able to fish all that long. I have seen pictures of the local catches & I am planing a fishing trip there myself. Best of luck. It is a beautiful lake.

PS. The bow hunting is most excellent there. The deer are about the same size as Jersey but the racks! :woohoo:

We do have a house so we will be on the warm side. I think theres like 10 or 12 of us in the house from my understanding which comes to 35 bucks each for the weekend so you can't beat it!
