Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Despite the recent snow, spring is here, and the weekend will be warm. I’m thinking the fishing will be pretty decent. I would like to hike into a river, but that hike could be as little as 5 minutes, or as much as an hour or so, depending on what people want to do.
Some rivers on my mind:
> Jackson River (Hidden Valley area, and I’m leaning towards going here)
> Rapidan River
> Conway River
Obviously our start time and return time will depend on where we go, but hopefully not heavily so. Maximum number of attendees is set by the club having only 3 sets of (fly fishing) rods & reels, and 2 pairs of waders. I’ll bump the maximum to 5 if an attendee has his/her own gear.
This is not intended as a beginner trip, but you need not be an expert either; as long as you have a modicum of experience fly fishing (or spin fishing, if you have your own gear), then this trip could be for you!
