Greg, Brad and I floated from the dam to 1st takeout on the New on this holiday. We landed 41 total bass between the three of us. There were huge numbers of people on the river floating, even out early between 6am and 10am there were a lot. At one point I could see 10 different boats within 300 yards. There were also lots of people wading. Our fish were caught mostly below the 1st bridge in push water above shoals, which is to be expected this time of year.

Brad and I hit Lake's pond with fly poles. We landed a combined 25 plus fish. We caught bluegills, a few largemouth bass and a lone crappie. Our fish came off of foam popping bugs. It was an absolutely perfect evening to be outside. I used by Dad's old Orvis T3. The pole is a dream to fish with.
Greg N., Greg Davis, Randy and I floated from the house on the Greenbrier to the 1st take out down southside on the New River. The water in the Greenbrier was very clear, while the water on the New river side was stained. Greg caught fish good on Greenbrier and I faired better on the New. Greg and I each caught 17. Greg Davis and Randy were learning the ropes of kayak bass fishing. Both Greg D. and Randy lost several fish and Randy landed 3. The fishing continued to be a little slower than would be expected for this time of year.
