There aren’t any stripers close to Charlottesville, but once there were.

Years ago, several fishermen who frequently visited Lake Anna decided to bring back some of the stripers they caught and released them in Chris Greene Lake. It was illegal, of course, but the stealth stockings caused quite a stir for several years. Anglers with light lines and minnows trying for crappies would occasionally tie into a spool-stripping striper and the fish grew to good sizes feeding on the numerous baitfish of the Albemarle County impoundment. An 8-year old boy, in fact, hooked and landed a 20-pound striper on a small Zebco outfit. The youngster will not likely forget that day at Chris Greene Lake.
