    I have been trying to find out the same thing but haven't much luck this year. I have heard of several people catching some big flats earlier in the year when they came up river to spawn but I think now the best bet will be in the Danville city limits between the dams. I had someone tell me they saw a guy fishing the middle of the day and caught a blue in the forties and and couple more prolly in the twenties. Hope this helps some, if I hear anything else i'll be sure to post.

    Been catching some nice ones in the mouth of the river. I think the big boys are heading out. Need to look for deeper water.

    Fished the dan b/w danville and south boston several times this year and skunked each time. I feel the dan was better in years past.
