I know where you are talking about fishing. I am from Richlands va. I have caught a couple up there on flies. I was using a black bunny strip streamer. I got one about 20" and one maybe 10 or 12" still fun though. I have recently bought a sink tip for the 8wt and want to take my pontoon up there and try again. I have some nice clousers and things to try out so that may be a trip to make soon. I would like to go before the water warn alot up there and they go deep. I think you could make a killign in the head fo the lake on streamers and poppers. I mean big noisy water slingin poppers. I would love to see the bite of a nice on on a popper.
CPR= catch, photo, & release!
