VA’s Big Tumbling Creek Getting Huge Trout Plants

By: Samuel Davidson We’ve been catching lots of trout since the opening day, but never have had the opportunity to catch trout this big this season. This is the biggest fishing week all year at Big Tumbling Creek. The creek is loaded with brooks and rainbows right now and the Virginia Department of Game & [...]

By: Chris Shaffer Tis the season when massive trout plants are taking place in Southwest Virginia. Near the top of that list is Crooked Creek, a place that is stocked several times a week by the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries. The creek is in excellent shape this spring and pushing out easy [...]

Trout Fishing Update: Virginia’s Cripple Creek

By: Chris Shaffer Traveling to film fishing videos can be risky. Weather can cripple water conditions instantly. This was the case Tuesday when we arrived on the banks of Southwest Virginia’s Cripple Creek. Following several weeks of on and off heavy rain the creek wasn’t in good shape. It was high and almost muddy. Visibility [...]

Virginia’s Big Tumbling Running High But Fishable

By: Chris Shaffer Rain fell everyday this week in Southwest Virginia. All the creeks we fished were running high and off-colored. Some were unfishable. Fortunately, while much higher than normal Big Tumbling Creek is still fishable and loaded with trout as plants continue to arrive four days a week. We filmed two episodes of Pautzke [...]

North Carolina/Virginia Border Cats Feeding in Shallow Water

By: Chris Shaffer Wes Jordan was adamant. He wanted all the rods out of the holders and resting on the deck. No rod tips were to be exposed, he said. At the time we were fishing in the Staunton River Channel on the upper end of Kerr Lake and surrounded by open space. The catfish [...]

Rain, Mud & High Water Not Slowing Kerr Lake Catfish Bite

By: Wes Jordan We’ve had a tremendous amount of rain over the Kerr Lake watershed this week. In less than 72 hours the lake level has climbed nearly 11 feet. And we're talking about a lake with 850 miles of shoreline, so that's a lot of water. Tiny feeder creeks that are normally only three feet wide [...]

Kerr Lake Crappie Showing in Large Numbers

By: Chris Bullock Largely in part to not having cold weather to extended periods of time it’s been a better than average year for crappie fishing on Kerr Lake. This year, there haven’t been many days where you couldn’t catch a big mess of crappie. While I don’t think the bite will last as long [...]

Southwest Virginia Kicking Out Monster Trout

By: Chris Shaffer It seems every time we plan a trip to Southwest Virginia the weather doesn’t cooperate. This time would be no different. Following a week of stable, spring-like weather the night before we were to return to Rural Retreat to fish the temperature plummeted from 83 degrees to near freezing. And, our good [...]

Virginia Beach Blue Crabs: Catching Them in the Heat

By: Chris Shaffer We’ve been monitoring websites from the piers in the greater Virginia Beach area for a few months now. Most advertised the best blue crabbing in ages. Not being local we flew to the East Coast to cash in on the action. Upon arrival they sang a different tune. “It’s been so hot [...]

Kerr Lake Blue Cats Straddling the Carolina/Virginia Border

By: Chris Shaffer Virginia and North Carolina’s Kerr Lake has produced the largest blue catfish ever – a 143-pound blue catfish – and while we flew cross country to film an episode of Pautzke Outdoors here if we were locals we would have cancelled yesterday’s session. There’s been no stability in the weather the past [...]
