    Default New guy

    Hi all, it's been fun reading through the forum. I'm a resident of Glen Allen, and am relatively new to fishing. Got a fly rod in may and have done some trout fishing in MD and WV, looking forward to more of that here in the winter. Right now i'm on the lookout for great spots in the richmond area to do some shore / wade fishing - bass, etc. i welcome any recommendations and look forward to sharing updates of my own. Have spent some time this summer wade fishing both the North & South Anna rivers, the James River Park System in Richmond, and haven't had much luck. Headed over to Dutch Gap Sunday to check out the lagoon, ponds, and maybe the James River trail.

    Welcome - check the special reg area of the Jackson - in the winter months, that place can be great - also check the stocking schedule

    We used to do real well behind the doswell waste treatment plant-North Anna. Pamunkey River around 301 was good for a few years to wade in but parts have gotten deeper...pools and more rainfall I suppose.

    Check the headwaters of the Chick...don't wade in there but a few bridges have parking and access and fish are in there.
