The Staunton river striped bass run is wrapping up.  Fish spawned heavily this week and shouldn’t be to many hanging around much longer.  My last trip to Brookneal was on Thursday and it was a good one.  My clients landed 30 striped bass, one blue catfish, and a 19 inch smallmouth bass.  Great way to end the season here in Virginia.  Weldon, NC saltwater striper run is just getting going.  Cooler than normal water temps have kept the fish from spawning and we should catch fish till the end of the month.  I have already done two trips there this week and have a couple more next week.  My last trip to Weldon last year was May 26th and we caught plenty so I believe we will have the same this year.DSC_2602 DSC_2605 DSC_2611
