Central Virginia Fishing Meetup...

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

    Not sure if it's been done before, or something but would anyone be interested in having a little meet up to do some fishing?  Possibly a day tournament or something, folks with boats/canoes/yaks can come out, take out those that might need a ride.  

   Any Central Virginia takers?

I'm definitely interested!  We do have some for Northern VA, but I don't think I've ever met any fellow fisherman in richmond before besides Sam

Sure, depending on my schedule.

All weekends in May are taken for me, between my wife's great adventure at Magic Dragon Days at St. Michael's; the NASCAR race; LSU Mardi Gras Float in the Bon Air Historical Days Parade; LSU Crawfish boil; placing flags on the graves of fallen heroes at the Amelia Vets Cemetery; and the Memorial Day weekend.

And all my weekends in June seem to be taken between Yute Day; American Legion Flag Retirement Ceremony; and two tournaments (James River and Rappahannock River).

I have July 18 open for now!!!!

So you all have fun and let us know how you all do.  :D   :D   :D

I have a two-man cataraft... if anyone wants to float the New River on a Tuesday or Saturday for smallmouth bass, send me a message.

I'm not a guide, but I do catch fish... and the trip is FREE.   :)

There are a lot of places to meet and fish in the greater Richmond area.

I would not suggest the James River.

I would suggest a pond or small lake, like Rooty or Three Lakes Park or up at Hanover Courthouse Park and that small pond or somewhere in Chesterfield County.

Maybe we should wait until the weather clears one weekend as this weekend we are having thunderstorms.

Just a suggestion.

Any pond recommendations??????  :)

There are a few ponds up the road from Rooty, which has a lot of crap in it right now.  Every cast you come out with weeds and algae.  That was about a month ago...maybe it has cleared up by now.

Burley, I would think you are correct.

We could meet closer to your area but you are way out in western Virginia and most of the guys are in eastern Virginia.

Let's see what plays out.  :)

Richmond is anything but central VA.  Richmond is eastern VA.  Central VA is Roanoke/Lynchburg.

But, if the state ends at Roanoke, I guess Richmond is central VA.

Actually, the state ends at Blacksburg and Virgina Tech.

Maybe you could move it over to Lynchburg but usually it is Blacksburg.  :D
