Conditions : James River: Upper James: Contributed by local guide Jared Harker (434) 941-9550. Fishing on the James River is currently excellent. With water temperatures dropping the big fish are on the move. Smallmouth are feeding heavily on smaller profile soft plastics and worms. We are having the best success on creature baits. Musky are moving on inline spinners and swimbaits. One of the biggest keys to success this time of year is long calculated casts. The water is low and clear and the fish will spook very easily. Observe the type of water where you are seeing fish move and cast at that same structure/depth out ahead of the boat. Fish that have not yet seen you will readily eat your offering. Don't overlook the top water bug, as the cicadas are still singing and falling from the overhanging trees. Tight lines!

James and Jackson at Lynchburg: Angler's Lane, (434) 385-0200, www.anglerslane.com. Doug Lane told me that the smallmouth action in the mid to upper James is good. They are aggressively going for popping bugs late in the day. They also like baitfish and clawdad patterns. The water is clear and in the low 60s.In the Jackson, trout are hitting hopper patterns, Double Dutch Bugs, Scud Nymphs and several custom flies made at Angler's Lane. The water is clear and 59 degrees.
