Heavy rains early this week has kept me off the river this week till today. I was surprised how quickly the river came down this week. I was able to get one of my trips out today after Virginia’s striped bass. Fishing was tough today for some reason. There is know question stripers are in the river but they seemed to be occupied with spawning and maybe the bright sun had the bite off. Everyday can’t be winners I suppose but we enjoyed our time on the river slinging flies. GW did get his first striper on the fly!
