Last Night on the Shenandoah River

On Friday 09/14/2012 I spent our last night on the Shenandoah River fishing for smallies.  I got out a little earlier than I had been doing and I was happy about that.   I got one but just as I was lifting him out of the water, he got off so no photos.  I managed to land 2 fall fish and 12 long ears on the Road Kill in olive and black.  I stopped before it was even dark out.  It was just one of those times when I knew I was done and I was OK with that.  It isn't like I won't be back or I didn't have fun.  I knew it was time to go and I did.  This never was supposed to be a fishing vacation.  This was supposed to be time spent with the family and when possible I could fish.  Melissa was kind enough to make sure I was able to fish every day.  I spent five days on the Shenandoah and one day at Mossy Creek.  While the times I was at each weren't the best, at least I got to fish my whole vacation and I was happy about that.  Speaking of times, most of my time on the water, I had the whole place to myself.  I am guessing it was because of how late in the year it was but whatever the reason, it was awesome.  I enjoyed it.  So ends our week long stay in the Shenandoah Valley.

Some photos of where I fished, the river and under water shots 

Whole parking lot to myself 

Got to have coffee before you go 

Got to have some Whiskey after you come home!
