    Default Claytor Paddling Trip 10/21/17

    I would think it was still August for all the fish I caught today, which was a big fat 0. The weather was beautiful but everything else was ugly. I usually come away with something this time of year. I usually see at least a small bait ball around the Boy Scout Camp. I at least see other people catching fish. The only fish I saw were in the mouths of two pretty sizeable otters who were munching on them like a person eats corn on the cob. So my fishing trip turned into just a paddle around the lake. I came across some pretty deer. One doe wasn't spooked by my presence and let me paddle within a few feet of her. Perhaps the dry fall is putting a hurt on the greens. She wasn't leaving the patch she found for anything. Oh well, maybe I'll try again in November.
    Thank God For Rednecks

    Claytor is a tough not to crack, I'm still trying myself. Anybody know where the stripers are hanging?

    I've marked them from the river to the dam. They're pelagic so you're gonna hafta cover some water to find them sometimes. Look for the gulls.
