Cold + Rain = Striper Fishing

The musky rivers have been high all this past week from recent rains.  They have finally came back down to a good level.  So to pass the time I have been on trout streams and Smith Mountain Lake chasing stripers on the fly.  Striper fishing this time of year on the lake can be brutal. [...]
