    Default Fishing the Upper James

    Anybody have any luck fishing the Upper James? I'm planning a fishing trip this month on the Jackson but want to get started wetting my line on the James or the Cowpasture River.
    When fly fishing is outlawed, only outlaws will fly fish.

    I havent fished the James or Cowpasture in a while - but the Jackson is still one of my favorites to fly fish. I cant help you on the others though.

    My favorite fly spot is gathright dam - tailwaters- #20/#22 midges. If you are floating, there are numerous trips between Moomaw and Covington. If you are wading, hit the tailwaters or Hidden Valley. If you have canoe or kayak, put in under the 220 bridge at Iron Gate and work your way upstream to intersection of Jackson and Cowpasture - Smallmouth City!
