I crossed three rivers today. The James, the York and the Piankatank. The Piankatank was by far the smallest and the prettiest of the three. Crossing the Piankatank I noticed a shoal on a little point just to the west and wondered if it would be a good spot for speckled trout.
I had to run up to Deltaville for a couple different reasons. One was to take a look at the ramp at a marina there. It appears to be a decent ramp with a $10 launch fee based on a mailbox and the honor system. My concern was launching there and leaving the jeep/trailer there for a week. Or two. There were two young women in the office. They said $10 to launch and just park in the field nearby. They did not seem to be concerned about storage costs so I said thanks and went on my way.
A nice crab cake sandwich, enjoyed outside in the shade, was a reward for a morning of work.
Crossing back over the Piankatank on the way home there was a small skiff with a fisherman casting along that shoal for trout.
