The Virginias are all thawed out and starting to fish pretty well. Of course not every anglers are having great days but we have talked to quite a few anglers who have been able to catch and release 20 or 30 fish per day. Trumbull has been producing lots of nice brookies and we saw at least one photo on an anglers phone of a released brookie that was well over a pound! Very nice. Mini jigs seemed to produce lots of fish for anglers fishing from tubes, there were also a lot of fish caught on bait like mice tails and pinched crawlers. Fly anglers did well with balanced leeches, soft hackles, wooly buggers and mini leeches. For lures try kastmasters and Thomas Bouyants.
Mike stopped by this morning with a pic of this 20.94 lb carp he caught on a dead drift crayfish......
