    Did some kayaking and snorkeling on the shenandoah on 7/1 fish were biting good, the river was clear, and the water was warm. Saw some nice bass and lots of suckers some huge and I was very impressed with the amount of cats I saw. was more than I had seen in many years.

    Which part of the shenandoah are you fishing? I used to fish it around Harpers Ferry before the spill in Front Royal. I`d love to see it bounce back.

    The last time I fished up there we had a problem with turtles. My buddy and I caught two big stringers of cats. We didn't have a big enough cooler to put them in so we tied them to the bank. We woke up thinking about fish & eggs for breakfast. When I pulled in the stringers, all we had was two stringers of fish heads. The turtles got them all! LOL
