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 [...]

Drought Buster

It has been a interesting May to say the least.  Another 1-2 inches of rain is coming today to throw a wrench in my plans for the upcoming week with clients.  Maybe this one will miss us.  My striped bass season at Weldon, NC on the Roanoke river ended before it had a chance to [...]

One Extreme to the Next

Well the drought is over.  I was really starting to get worried about how dry it has been.  I must say not cancelling a trip for two months was nice and unusual.  Apparently God heard my concerns that the rivers  were getting on the low side.  Last week most of the state received 5 to [...]

Stripers, A Good Reason to Call in Sick

Striped bass fishing continues to produce on the Staunton river near Brookneal, VA.  Thankfully we have gotten some rain and more in the forecast for the weekend.   Water levels have gotten low on the area rivers and starting to concern me.  The rain has cooled off the water temps and prolonged our striper run. [...]

Lines Sides and Brown Trout

Just finished up 5 days on the water with clients fishing for striped bass and trout.  More and more fish are showing up on the Staunton river near Brookneal, VA.  The bigger female stripers showed up just recently and we got into some fish in the 5 to 10 pound range on Monday's trip.  The [...]
