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 [...]

One Fishy Weekend

I had to reschedule Andy's trip two different times this winter due to high water and weather.  We had originally planned to fish for muskie for two days, but with the flows still higher than I like I suggested we do a day after brown trout with streamers.  Jackson River near Covington, VA fished great [...]

Not Another Polar Vortex

Well its been one thing after another to keep me off the water.  This week the rivers came down from the snowmelt and just when I thought I might actually get to guide this weekend, the dreaded Polar Vortex showed up.  With high winds and low temps I didn't want to make anyone miserable.  The [...]

Snow Day

School was closed for several days like it is most times when the ground is white.  My son went back to school quicker than the public schools, one of the benefits of a private school.  With no trips for a few days that freed me up to do some fishing.  My nephew was still out [...]

Knocked the Ice out the Guides

I knocked the dust off the trout rods and headed north to the South river in Waynesboro, VA. With a large snowstorm headed my way, I had to reschedule three musky trips due to the weather coming and needed to fish because I knew it might be a while. I didn't have long to fish [...]
