    Default North Fork Shenandoah

    Fished the north fork in Timberville yesterday. Solid 4 hours of fishing and caught 3 small mouth. The fish kill must have decimated the population again last year. 2 fish were 8-10 inches and I was a chunk at 17 inches. All fish were healthy but the population is definitely not there. I've fished this stretch for 30 years and know where they should be but they weren't. Its a shame.

    Haven't hit the south fork yet this year, anxious to see how it goes.

    I would agree 100%. Numbers and quality both way down.
