    Check in the VMRC Website. A huge section of the James is off limits to even fishing for stripers during the Spawn. I think it goes from the Chickohominy up to Town Point at Hopewell. There are similar restrictions on all the tidal rivers. I would guess the concentrations are where you are not supposed to fish. We catch a few from Hopewell upstream ,,heck I have seen some use the fish ladder at Bosher Dam but its not thick anywhere as I define thick.

    Ronnie,
    In threads where you can give rep you will see a little black starburst icon down in the bar that contains the thanks button, reply with quote button, etc. Click that star icon to give rep points. :smile1:
