> Going to be in Lynchburg, VA this weekend. Has anyone out there ever fished that area? I'd hate to play golf all weekend.

I was up that way in July. I fished the lake at the Peaks of Otter one afternoon, and caught some
monster bream on poppers and mayfiies. The bream were spawning, and were packed so tightly in one
spot that I thought I was casting to a stump. Only when the dark spot moved did I realize that I was
casting to a cloud of bream. Fished a wadable section of the James early one morning and had a few smallmouths
strike, but I couldn't hook one.

There's a fly shop in Roanoke that should be able to help more. Wish I could remember the name of it.
