James River

Tip of the week 

Top water bugs fished in the shade lines and tight to the bank. Streamers and pencil poppers along the grass beds. Clawdads on the clay banks.

Top water action is all but over. Go with heavy weighted craw fish patters and big profile streamers.

Seven-day forecast 

With over a week of rain the river is blown. It is recovering so check the gauges before heading out.
