I have managed to get in two nice float trips this summer. One of these was on the new River. The size and power of the new River is awesome. I can see why there are fishermen who drown there almost every year. The current is powerful and the changing water levels could get you into trouble fast. Fishing, like any activity, has its dangers but they can be minimized by using common sense and wear- ing a life jacket. I can't swim a stroke so you can be sure that 1 always wear my jacket. My other trip was on the Green- brier River with my fishing partner, Mike Goodson from Alderson. It is hard for two working people to get off at the same time but Mike and 1 both got the same day off and planned an evening trip. We were going to float a section of the Greenbrier from Harper to Caldwelt. This is a fairly short stretch of water but it has everything from long, deep pools to swirling rapids. We used Mike's Coleman Crawdad, which is almost the perfect boat for the Greenbrier River. It is only good for two people to fish out of but the big advantage I like is the stability. We put in the water at about 3:30 in the afternoon and were on our way. The sun popped through the clouds and it was so hot, I thought I was going to melt. The fishing started out pretty slow, especially when the sun was hot on the water. I was using my old favorite, a motor oil grub on a 3/16 ounce lead head jig. We had forgot- ten the anchor and had to make do with tying rocks on a rope. That was quite a problem because the current took us through some of the best water too fast to fish carefully. As the sun went lower in the sky, the fishing got better and better. The fish would hit like crazy for 10 min- utes and then we couldn't buy a By JAMES CREWS strike. With my usual luck, every time we hit a hot spot, I would get hung up and have to tie on a dew jig or would get a bird's nest of line around the reel. When we floated through the deep water, I got the most strikes by letting the jig fall straight to the bot- tom and then bumping it along. The bass were hard to hook and I missed all kinds of fish. It seemed like they would pick up the jig and run towards the boat, making it hard to set the hook. We figled until 9:30 which was when We arrived at the bridge at Caldwell. Between the two of us, we caught over a hundred fish. We didn't catch a fish that was over 10 inches but they sure put up a good fight to be so small. It was a great day spent relaxing on the river and the only thing that bothered me was the litter that showed up along the water. Please keep the river clean because once it is ruined, it's gone. On the Local Front Shirley Howard is shown with one of those fighting Greenbrier River smallmouth. The fish was 13- 1/2 inches long and was the biggest smallmouth she has ever caught.
