    Default Fishing Report of various streams with 2 friends to new waters.

    Refreshing to have had decent conditions to fish the last couple of weeks. All streams had water temps at 60 degrees and the flows were just excellent.

    This road went 4 miles before it ended and 4x4 was engaged and used while exploring.




    This little guy watched me the entire time while I got ready to hit the stream. Mother Nature is special.





    This rainbow hit a very large articulated streamer in very deep water and broke my rod. Safely landed and released. Look closely at the red TAG behind the eye.





    Water was 60.





    Frank had the light on him this morning.





    All dressed up!!!





    Frank with another.





    This was one of the most beautiful waterfalls.




    Lots of Grouse.





    Going back to this place again.





    I've seen these in yellow and white.





    Thank You,

    Breck

    First time I've ever seen 3 grown Grouse standing together like that! Saw a hen with young last year up at Newfound Gap. My GSP would love to put a point on those.

    Bran,

    how often do you get to bird hunt?

    From age 9 - 18 every weekend from BEFORE daylight till dark was spent a field hunting pheasant, quail, rabbit and then graduated to running fox and coyote with dogs on the woods and fields of Illinois.

    Interesting thought.....I couldn't possibly tell you what cartoons or TV shows were on during those days. PARADISE LOST!!!!

    With beagles running rabbit we always flushed the birds. Never got to hunt behind a fine bird dog though.

    I try to hunt a few times each season. It's kind of like fly fishing, not nearly enough!!
    I mostly hunt Bobwhite around southern VA and northern NC, work in a couple of trips in late winter up along the Blue Ridge of VA or Shanandoah
    for the Ruffed Grouse. I've always wanted to hunt Pheasant, never been. I have a German Shorthair, she is about 8 years old now. Good dog, probably too close working for the Pheasant though since I broke her and trained her close for Grouse and we don't have huge fields around here so even the Quail dogs can work fairly close.
    The Quail is a story in itself. I see all of the conservation efforts with TU and similar groups, and I'm a member of TU. Also a member of Quail Forever, QU, and Grouse Society. That's been my focus for about the last 6 years, planting and managing for the Quail on our farm. I've followed several programs, and am now working with biologists from the VA DGIF on the Northern Bobwhite Quail Initiative program. We've definately had some successes, just hope we can continue in the long run. I saw 2 seperate coveys of young (3-4 week) Quail this year, first time in 5 years I've had that pleasure!!
    You would love to come visit here, my neighbor has about a 50 acre Rabbit pen/ training pen for Beagles. I've got Rabbits everywhere!!
