May Days

It has been a mixed species bag this month.  Striped bass fishing in Weldon, NC is still going strong.  The numbers of stripers is incredible to see each year this run happens.  A lot of fish in the 15-20" range but we did break through all the males and got a healthy female in the [...]

High and Lows

Its been a interesting Spring to say the least.  Two large rain fronts a week apart last month kept me sidelined from the striped bass run on the Staunton River.  The rain didn't only affect the Staunton, it had creeks, rivers, branches, tribs, you name it busting at the seams all over the state of [...]

Deep Freeze 2018

Happy New Year!  2017 was a great year for fishing and I thank everyone for keeping my boat floating.  The new year was brought in with cold temps.  Yesterday morning was 5 degrees and the daytime high was 25.  It looks like we have about 5 more days of temps below freezing.  The streams and [...]

Ready for a Change

Nothing much has changed here far as the weather.  The typical pattern has been substantial rain each week towards the weekend.  By the time the rivers get back in shape another system moves in.  Hasn't slowed me down on trout fishing though.  I have had to reschedule some due to high water on the Jackson [...]

Rain, Rain, Go Away

This Spring as proven to be exact replica of last years Spring.  Dry April then May brought heavy rains.  I got out one more time after the stripers on the Staunton River at Brookneal, VA.  I figured it was done after the last big rain but there was fish still around.  Water was still very [...]

Before The Blowout

The rains have came and instead of guiding everyday this week I have been cancelling and rescheduling trips.  My biggest competition is Mother Nature and she always wins.  We do need the rain though, it has been dry and unseasonably warm for April.  Everything has been early this year.  Fish spawns like the smallmouth bass [...]

Busy, Busy, Busy

I have flat out been rolling.  I apologize for the lack of posting but when you are guiding almost everyday spare time becomes nonexistent.  I can't complain though, I love what I do and I enjoy staying busy.  The trout fishing has been great most trips. Caddis have been hatching on streams and rivers so [...]

When the Water Rises

Thankfully we have started to receive some much needed rain.  The forecast shows we have more to come in the future.  This is great news because I have never seen a Spring with such low water due to the dry Winter we had.  When the water rises is one of my favorite times to be [...]

Fly Flinging into Spring

Spring is finally here!  We were teased in February with beautiful weather, then March arrived and brought the cold back.  Extended forecast for central Virginia looks like Spring is here to stay awhile.  Spring brings a lot of options to the fly fisherman in Virginia.  One of the most exciting fisheries getting ready to start [...]
