    this time of year i would try next to Dan Daniels park in danville. You can catch blues there all the time. Then in the summer i fish for flatheads near the new bridge up next to the damns. Across from Dan River Fabrics.

    if you come out of grassy creek into the main channel go left, and look for the buoy's, keep going until you see one with 19 on it, it's not far from grassy.
    Good Luck.

    I havent been doing very good recently, went yesterday and only caught 1 blue bout 10 lbs, Good bait was hard to come by, biggest i could find was bout 6", but had about 2 dozen, Caught them in back of sandy creek, in about 2 ft of water. I fished from the pump house - the rivers..
    Maybe next trip will be better.
