Hey.

I am headed to Arrington in August with a vet buddy I got involved in PHWFF. He's into the jam band music too, so we are going to LockN.
:banana011:  :banana026:   /'/ While there, we were considering some fishing opportunities. I know the James is nearby, but don't know shit about what's in it or if it is wadable. I have a raft but this was more about a concert than fishing. Just looking for ideas. I don't hotspot so I don't need specifics, just targets to research. I am guessing there isn't much of trout water nearby and especially in August. I was thinking smallmouth, maybe carp?

Go to pm if you need to.

Go west and you are quickly in the Blue Ridge and trout territory. Go east and you hit the James and smallmouth.  You are in the territory of several of the guys on this board.  In August, the James on some sections can be low and rocky making floating very tough.  The trout streams will be low too unless we get lucky with the rain.


troutfanatic

that seems to be the consensus.

Ken,
I got your text, my phone is jacked up. It took a dunk this past weekend. I'll hitcha back from my iPad this evening. Others have said what you said.

Don't eat the brown acid.

Does that still exist?

In my heyday, I was more of a fungus guy.  0:0

I haven't seen Phil Lesh on a stage since 1995. Gotta do this.

Native Fisher

I considered going to that event over the years but never could convince myself to go and be subjected to the yuppie hoard.  Been some good acts over the years at that shit show.

My only desire is not to get arrested.

Should be a great show.   /'/ Take SJWH's advice and you'll be fine.

Yup, going fishing

I'm actually surprised I am the only one who brought it up on here. Also going to D&Co., at least twice.

I am an advocate for the medicinal use of psychedelics; however, I am also seeking a medical license, so no goodies for me.

I'd prefer the fungus anyways.

Blue Mountain Barrel House is a must stop for brewskis.  Have an Evil 8, or three, thank me later. 0:0

TF,

I assume you just pulled your new profile picture from the web.  That guy is a very good blues/roots guitarist.  I have seen him and have one of his cds.

Yessir, but I dig his wig. I'm not red that much anymore, but I couldn't get the fro if I tried. I suck at the guitar, bigly.

That was his real hair.  He has it short now.


troutfanatic

when I say wig, I don't actually mean a wig. I mean a hairstyle ;D


Native Fisher

Its bad enough dealing with my son and the scouts with their hip lingo.  I don't need any advanced age f'ers like me talking that shit.  :D
