Since 1999 we have guided our home water, the James and know it well. Lynchburg is the southern most stretch west of the fall line. We focus most closely on the stretches within 40 miles of Lynchburg in each direction. If you are looking to fly fish the James, we can guide you so you can enjoy its beauty as we work to put you on fish.
The James is historically well-known for smallmouth bass and muskie. We target muskie in the early winter, late spring and again in the fall, giving them a rest during their spawn and during their more vulnerable summer months.
Every river has cycles and the James is no exception. Currently there are sections where it is still strong, and others where weak spawns have reduced counts. The flip side is that one can catch large smallmouth in those low fish count years as there is less competition for food.
