    Ahhh, that's what I get for doing my speed reading. Most were caught using nightcrawlers or red wigglers, powerbait, or spinners. One caught a dozen in 90 minutes using a spinner.

    This river has been stocked for 3-4 years so no telling how long some of the bigger ones we caught have been in the river.

      Do you get a Mayfly hatch in Virginia?

      For the last three weeks our trout haven't looked at anything else.

            If we did, it was in March! Our spring started a good 3 weeks early this year. There were a couple of guys there that tried fly rods since we had instructors present. Me? I spent too much time in the trees when I tried it!

              You guys pack your bags and come on up!

              Jody we moved in further along in May to the Memorial Day weekend because we have had some nasty rainy cold days in early May. It didn't seem to affect the trout at all.

              • I absolutely love fishing, have done ever since I was about eight or nine years old. When I had my accident back in 1986 I really thought that the days of angling were over, I thought it would be absolutely impossible for me to hold a fishing rod, let alone use a reel. Anyway, after quite a lot of thoughts and experimentation I finally got back into my favourite hobby and haven't looked back.

                For anybody in my position who may be wondering how they can hold a fishing rod securely then check my website out, it may give you a few tips on how you can modify your fishing rod and equipment.

                • I have done some lake-pond-and riverbank fishing post injury. Not a lot here in Carolina where it is so hot in the long summer. However, none of it was as enjoyable as penetrating the brush lined mountain creeks around the family farm and bringing home a batch of native brook trout. Some of the creeks that were good fishing are now dried up due to climate change.

                  • so, I went fishing today. I lost two fish because I was trying to snell my hooks, and it didnt hold. I had a tiny light rod and there were catfish on the end. I have never lost fish because of my knot, but the second one, I packed up, all my rigs for the day were done about the same way. Anyone know how to explaint a good knot for the hook that will hold? I am using round hooks. I got many bites with my silly improvised rig, but the catfish undid the snell, while it held for trout, crappie, blue gill, and a nice size perch.
                    the catfish loved my rig the most though. I managed to bring two in, but barely.

                      ...... don't forget to lubricate the line with spit before pulling the knot tight.

                      PS It says it's a fly fishing knot but I use it for any eyed hook.

                      • thank you. I used a round hook, orange, yellow and green glass beads, with split pea shot between each bead, and a barrel swivel, at line end. with a worm. the worm hopped around in a funny way, and the catfish went nuts for it. pictures soon.
