Alright i'm looking for some advice on fishing the James River. I have alot of fishing experience, specifically pond fishing and quite a bit of fishing in the Gulf off of LA. My Girlfriend just recently moved to Lynchburg and Ill be visiting on the weekends and I'd like to maybe fish the James River some. I have no experience fishing rivers and I'm just looking for some advice on how to get started. I guess I'm looking at having to rent a canoe or buy one down the line to fish there. Also smallmouth? catfish? What species can I expect. I've done some research but I would like some personal experiences. Thanks Oh and ill take any advice on long distance relationships also. this will be tough.
