Shoulder Season

Well its officially the season you have to work harder to catch fish.  Shorter days and colder weather changes the way fish eat and what they eat.  The Jackson River near Covington, Va has fished well this Fall but this week water temperatures have dropped below 50 degrees.  When the water temp gets near 45 [...]

Back to Bass

Fresh off the plane from a week in Florida with my family on vacation.  It was sunny and it was hot but a great time was had.  I was able to sneak out a day to tarpon fish with Lost Coast Anglers out of the Tampa area.  Awesome experience watching the tarpon slide just off [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
