So, with the acquisition of a yak, I want to be able to carry it along and dump in wherever I can to fish the springtime for stripers. I live in Chesapeake near the MMBT and always hear of spring stripers in the James,etc.

Can anyone share when and where you would go to striper fish the protected rivers west of Hampton Roads.

Hoping with the yak, I am no longer limited to finding a decent boat ramp to put in and tides for launching and retrieving are no longer an issue.

Please dont limit your answers just to stripers. Hoping to find some new places to explore and get some pullage.
