James McKinney

We started the float during a morning long down poor. After catching one or two in the 15 inch range, he finally connnected with a good fish. We were fishing the Jackson River tailwaters in Virginia. About half way throught the float, I was standing in the middle of the river...I heard my brother yell at me. I looked up and next thing I know my raft is floating down the middle of the river...They had increased the flow on the dam from 300 cfs to 750 cfs with no warning ! That water turned brown, full of longs and debries, and running very fast. . We didnt get another bite untill just before the take out, when he landed this fish....His name is James McKinney...
