Roanoke Report

Bait and jig fishing is spectacular if you are in the right spot, tied up in the trees with the squirels.   The water is really high but there are a lot of fish in the river.   Very tough to get a fly to them.  

"The crowds have left but the fish have not. Flow has been high and steady for almost two weeks and water temp has not budged from 66 or 67 in a week. Fish have spawned and are chewing.  Good numbers and quality fish.  I am here through June 1st with available dates, but if the water stays high, they will stay here longer than me!"  ---Capt. Rod
