About

This is an incredible way to catch a large migrating brown trout in rural and scenic farmlands of Southern Virginia, You will be floating down fast currents and deep runs full of resident rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, and other warm water species and you never really know what may grab your streamer. Large hatches of caddis and stoneflies fuel an incredible bug fishery as well as the world-class streamer fishing for brown trout and Smallmouth bass.
Being familiar with dry fly fishing, bug rig casting, and streamer fishing is highly recommended to succeed in this dynamic fishery on tough days. You will also need to be physically fit to help unload, load, and generally move the raft throughout the day.

Guided by Collin Kreis-Potgieter

Boone, North Carolina6-9 years of experience

I started fishing in 2013 after I graduated high school in Boone NC. I fished the mountain creeks in the high country every day for 2 years straight before pursuing the idea of being a guide. Being able to make money while being on the water was my biggest incentive, I sacrificed my formal education at a community college and dove head long into my dream. I started to row a drift boat a few years into my fishing career and by my fourth year of guiding I was taking trips on the Tennessee tail-waters, the South Holston and Watauga rivers for High Country guide service. Last year was my 4th full time season as a professional guide, leading nearly 200 trips a year since Covid started in 2020. In 2022 I was invited last minute to be a guide/camp cook on week long trips 100 miles through the remote wilds of south west Alaska. 3 of us guides and 8 sets of 6 clients camp and fish down the Kanektok river from early July until early September. Completing that season left me wanting more of the fishery, the Yupik culture and landscape. I plan to pursue the Alaska opportunity for years to come. I spend my free time in the winters guiding the occasional client, catching redfish on the coast of the Carolinas and spending quality time with my co workers and fondest rivals, the large brown trout and musky of the NC, VA and TN borderlands.
