Have I Made 10,000 Casts Yet?

This week I did my first few musky guided trips of the Fall/Winter season.  Started out this past Wednesday with a couple great guys, one from PA and the other a fishing guide in CO.  Weather was on the warm side this week, in fact I believe we may have broke some records.  I wasn't [...]

See Ya Next Year Bass

Fall is a wonderful time of year but also a bit depressing for me.  Yes the air temperature is comfortable and the leaves changing colors are nice to look at.  But the down side to Fall other than raking and blowing leaves till January, is the smallmouth bass season has come to a close for [...]

Tour De Colorado Rivers

Just got back from a great trip to Colorado where guiding all started for me.  Took some clients of mine out with me to fish some of the best rivers in the state.  We hired my good friend Pat Dorsey, who gave me my first job as a guide many years ago.  It was awesome [...]

Chainsaws, Trout, and Bass

I have always said Mother Nature is my biggest competition.  She decides if the river will be good enough for my trips to be successful.  She can also make the river more dangerous than it already is.  After the flood waters came down over a week ago on the Jackson river near Covington, VA,  a [...]

Pleasant Surprise

Yesterdays trip brought a unexpected surprise for my client Brian.  The periodic cicada emergence has been slow with cooler than normal air temps.  But this week we received air temps well into the 80's.  The northern part of Allegheny county is one of the few areas in Virginia that will have a emergence.  Yesterday I [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Spring Fever

Today is my first day off in ten days.  The guide season has broke loose and for good reason.  Weather is great, flowers are blooming and trees are budding.  Rivers are in great shape as well.  Trout fishing has been great since March and continues to get better.  Water temps are rising and bringing out [...]

March Browntrout Madness

I spent the last day of March with a great client catching wild browns on one of Virginia's prettiest rivers.  This March was truly one of the best I have experienced in quite sometime.  It warmed up quickly, which brought the water temps up to a more desirable temperature for a hungry brown.  Most of [...]
