A week without rain! The James has a good color and running at 9,230 cfs in Scottsville. The ramp is still mud covered so be prepared if heading out. Water temperature is 52. This temperature will have the fish traveling to their spawning grounds. I'd start with crayfish patterns early and then go with a baitfish pattern as the day warms along with the water.
March 23 is the open house at Mossy Creek Fly Fishing. Always a great time. You should make time to go and visit with the guides and factory reps that will be there.
April 27 and 28 is the South River Fly Fishing Expo. Come and take advantage of seminars and demos that are being offered. I'll have a booth so come by and visit.
