    When fishing on the Staunton river today. It finally has WATER!! My friend Hunter and I went and put in at Clarkton Bridge. We ran up river to the and tried a couple of spots with no luck. Hunter caught 1 channel cat and we both missed a couple! Might go back Sun. If the weather stays warm the Blues & Stripers should be coming soon!! :smile2:

    Stripers in the Staunton River. Brings back memories of fishing with my grandfather when I was a boy. All these years later and I still miss that man like crazy. Shouldn't be too long!

    i like to fish down around the split when the water is there. i hear that the big blues have started moving upriver so you might get lucky. i fish the dan side more than the staunton. it seems i have better luck with the flatties on the dan side.
