Whites On The Upper James

Recommended Posts

It has been great fish are all over the place. Lots of big sows every where and fish are rolling on top of the water as well.

I only fly fish for them and have been using 150gr Rio dc 24 sink tip. I have been using clouser minnows in chart/white and grey/white. The fish are just attacking it seems to be a day time bite right now Monday and Tuesday quit fishing around 8pm and we all had our limits. I prefer to fish at night so last night I did not start till 8 pm and fished till midnight and only had 7 fish. They would not touch the fly with the sinking line had to end up going to a straight floating line dead drifting it and picked a few off. I have been fishing straight across from boat ramp and down and there are a few spin fisherman that are catching them on white jig and purple bettle spins on that side as well. With the warmer weather headed our way this weekend it should be an awesome spot. I will be in the turkey woods with my daughters so good luck to all.

Kind of dismal at Blunks tonight. Two fellow fly fishermen did ok across the river from the ramp, but I only had one bump, no fish. Other people had a few fish. A departing spin guy said there were thousands of fish showing two nights ago, but gone now. Wonder how the folks who walked up river to Taylor did?

I've only been down one time when the sows were running well and had an absolute blast. It was like opening day at a trout park except most folks had boats lol. Seems every time I've been down in April, the weather doesn't cooperate and we miss the best part of the run.
