URBANNA — Over 100 oyster boats are working on public oyster rocks in areas six and seven in the Rappahannock River.

They are harvesting their limits of 16 bushels to a boat before noon each day, reported oystermen up and down the river last week.

Areas six and seven range from Towles Point near Bertrand in Lancaster County going west to Smokey Point near Water View. On the Middlesex side, watermen are working out of Locklies, Urbanna, Robinson, LaGrange and Parrotts creeks.
