Conditions : James River: Upper James: Contributed by local guide Jared Harker (434) 941-9550. The James River is fishing very well. With higher than normal rain falls and cooler temperatures, the big fish are moving and feeding. Smallmouth and muskie alike are feeding like it's March. September is one of my favorite months to be on the river. The temperatures begin falling along with the boat traffic. There isn't a better time of year to enjoy the James River and never lay eyes on another boat! If you are out on the water throw top water against shade banks, or dead drift soft plastics. Tight lines!

Middle James: Contributed by local angler Doug Reynolds. Fishing has been good on the middle river. Most fish being caught right now are in the 8 to 12 inch size range with a few larger fish being caught. Plastics, small crankbaits and top water plugs are still performing well. As always, Let's go fishing!

James River: (Lynchburg downstream) Popper fishing has been hit or miss in the last few weeks due to the temp swings. On hot days with low, clear water top water action is great! Baitfish and streamer patterns are pulling most of the weight lately on the overcast rainy days. Despite the recent rain the river is still running low with good visibility. Upper James has fished very consistently lately. Water temperatures are a little cooler the further up the James you go. Water color is stained but has fished well, we are seeing higher numbers of fish but with a generally smaller size. Chartreuse is a go to color in the upper stretches of the river.
