The Groundhog was Right

Well Punxsutawney Phil wasn't joking when he didn't see his shadow.  The past two weeks has felt like March not April.  Fished in the snow two days last week.  It finally seems like Spring has finally sprung and plans to stick around this time.  Temps in the 70's and 80's the past few days. The [...]

March Browns

Spring is finally here even though it has felt like January the past two weeks.  A couple snowstorms and cold temps have kept the water temps cold.  Today reached 74 degrees so I'm hoping the temps below 50 are done.  Looking forward to green grass, leaves, and flowers from here on out. Trout fishing has [...]

One to Remember

In the world of musky fishing, musky hold all the cards.  They decide who is going to be a hero or a zero. Some clients catch one on their first try, others grind it out till it happens and I believe a lot just give it up.  Musky fly fishing is not for everyone and [...]

Pre Spawn Bite

Virginia went from drought to flood in a snap.  Rain from earlier this month really helped the remaining pre spawn bite for musky.  With flows higher and water clarity being green, musky do not have as much time to think about wether to eat or not.  Over the past five guided trips we have had [...]

Time to Down Size

Its that time of year to start downsizing your fly.  The cold nights and mornings have brought down the water temps below 50 degrees.  On rivers I would normally throw a 12-16 hook I'm now fishing 16-20 to get the bites.  Morning fishing has been slow with the afternoon bringing on feeding and the bugs. [...]

Slime Rockets

It has been a productive Fall on Virginia's trout water.  Waters have been very low on the majority of the mountain streams, but some recent rains have helped raise water levels.  I primarily have been sticking to the tailwater section of the Jackson River.  Flows have been consistent there because of the dam.  Flows are [...]

Smallmouth Time

My favorite time of year in Virginia is here.  The official first day of Summer is still a couple weeks away but the first of June is Summer to me.  Summer means 6 weight rods, floating lines, floating flies, and hungry smallmouth bass.  Most folks that know me know that smallmouth bass are my favorite [...]

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 [...]
