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 [...]

Jackson River Wild Browns

Jackson River near Covington, VA has been fishing good the past two weeks.  The browns have really started to put the feed bag on.  Still a little early for dry fly action but have been seeing some sporadic hatches.  Just hasn't been enough insects to get their attention on the surface.  Chris had a couple [...]

Brown Trout Are On The Move

Its been an incredible week of fishing and guiding.  Couldn't ask for better weather here in Virginia for early March and looks like the warm temps are going to continue for next week.  The early warm up has risen water temps.  Musky are now spawning and I'm leaving them alone for the next month so [...]
