2019-03-25T14:33:47-07:00

By: Samuel “Fluff” Davidson The Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries is stocking lakes and streams all over the state and fishing has been good. However, recently I was invited to fish a private pond and had a blast. Known as Seven Springs Trout Pond this small pond is located in Tazewell, Virginia, and [...]

Big Trout Eating Up in Rural Retreat

2018-11-05T17:51:12-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Trout stocking has resumed in Virginia. Meanwhile, foot traffic remains low on many planted creeks and rivers in the region as hunting remains in focus. Fortunately, that spells opportunity for anglers looking to tangle with trout this fall. We spent a week filming in the region and found excellent stream conditions at [...]

By: Samuel Davidson We’ve been catching lots of trout since the opening day, but never have had the opportunity to catch trout this big this season.

By: Chris Shaffer Tis the season when massive trout plants are taking place in Southwest Virginia. Near the top of that list is Crooked Creek, a place that is stocked several times a week by the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries.

Trout Fishing Update: Virginia’s Cripple Creek

2018-04-28T15:23:12-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Traveling to film fishing videos can be risky. Weather can cripple water conditions instantly. This was the case Tuesday when we arrived on the banks of Southwest Virginia’s Cripple Creek. Following several weeks of on and off heavy rain the creek wasn’t in good shape. It was high and almost muddy. Visibility [...]

Virginia’s Big Tumbling Running High But Fishable

2018-04-27T11:16:55-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Rain fell everyday this week in Southwest Virginia. All the creeks we fished were running high and off-colored. Some were unfishable. Fortunately, while much higher than normal Big Tumbling Creek is still fishable and loaded with trout as plants continue to arrive four days a week. We filmed two episodes of Pautzke [...]

North Carolina/Virginia Border Cats Feeding in Shallow Water

2018-04-18T18:58:16-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Wes Jordan was adamant. He wanted all the rods out of the holders and resting on the deck. No rod tips were to be exposed, he said. At the time we were fishing in the Staunton River Channel on the upper end of Kerr Lake and surrounded by open space. The catfish [...]

Rain, Mud & High Water Not Slowing Kerr Lake Catfish Bite

2018-04-18T18:58:27-07:00

By: Wes Jordan We’ve had a tremendous amount of rain over the Kerr Lake watershed this week. In less than 72 hours the lake level has climbed nearly 11 feet. And we're talking about a lake with 850 miles of shoreline, so that's a lot of water. Tiny feeder creeks that are normally only three feet wide [...]

Kerr Lake Crappie Showing in Large Numbers

2018-04-18T18:58:58-07:00

By: Chris Bullock Largely in part to not having cold weather to extended periods of time it’s been a better than average year for crappie fishing on Kerr Lake. This year, there haven’t been many days where you couldn’t catch a big mess of crappie. While I don’t think the bite will last as long [...]

Southwest Virginia Kicking Out Monster Trout

2018-04-18T18:59:05-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer It seems every time we plan a trip to Southwest Virginia the weather doesn’t cooperate. This time would be no different. Following a week of stable, spring-like weather the night before we were to return to Rural Retreat to fish the temperature plummeted from 83 degrees to near freezing. And, our good [...]
