Where is the best fishing in the rivers?

[faq answer]

In the Nottoway, the upper portions till you get to the Southampton Co.line are known for smallmouth, red-eye and red throat. From there downriver it is better known for largemouth, chain pickerel and other slower water species. In the spring shad, stiped bass and herring are abundant.

In the Blackwater above rt 603 access is limited, but red-throat fishing and largemouth can be very good. On the lower river, largemouth, bream and chain pickerel are abundant. In the spring herring and striped bass can be caught.
