I haven't been on this site in a while.
Since my original post I have found an easy way into the Swift Creek Reservoir which is 5 minutes from where I am living.
I have also been down to the Sandy River Reservoir a few times and also visited Carvin's Cove near Roanoke and Briery Creek where I caught some nice fish and which looks real promising.
I recently have found a way to access the James River near me, but haven't had a chance yet to get there.
I have heard about the Nottoway river and will have to check it out.
Thanks for the warm Welcome
