Striper Tug

I have been guiding striped bass since my last blog post.  I finished up the freshwater striped bass run on the Staunton River at Brookneal, VA on May 4th.  The freshwater run was frustrating this year, it seemed like you had to be in the right place at the right time to get any numbers [...]

Here We Go Again

Spring was looking great, rivers were at great levels and caddis hatches were going strong.  Things changed a week ago with a strong storm front coming from the west.  Some places in Virginia received a couple inches of rain.  Definitely not what I want to see after 2018's wash out.  Yesterday another strong front came [...]

Consistently Inconsistent

Consistently inconsistent describes the weather this year perfectly.  We went from having 60's one week back to 30's and 40's.  This morning I woke up to 4 inches of snow.  We are only a week away from March and a couple weeks away from daylight savings time.  I think all of us are due for [...]

Early Spring?

The ground hog did not see his shadow, can we trust him?  Seems like he's right most years so I'm looking forward to a early Spring and warmer temps.  This past week's weather was awesome.  Air temps in the 60's and low 70's until today when a cold front pushed in.  I took advantage of [...]

Wet Start

Well a lot hasn't changed since 2018.  The start of 2019 has been very wet and cold.  January is always a tough month for fishing.  You have to work hard for them with the cold water temps this time of year but you can't catch them sitting on the couch.  I wish I had more [...]

Happy New Year!

Its been a heck of a ride this year, I believe the wettest year on record.  I was amazed I got out as much as I did.  I appreciate everyone that understood and put up with all the rescheduling and cancelations.  2018 wasn't all bad, still had plenty of great days on the water and [...]

Shutting Down 2018

Looking at my weather app six times a day for the past two weeks, I was pretty sure I was done guiding for 2018.  Thankfully with the holidays my clients were flexible and we had a one day window to get out on the water before flows raised.  The trip was originally a musky trip [...]
