Virginia Fly Fishing Reports and Conditions

Great trout and bass fishing have finally arrived! Check out the latest VA Living Magazine in a few weeks to see why Mossy Creek was voted Best of the Best in VA!

James and Shenandoah River

Spawn is upon us! The big fish are moving to their spawning areas right now. Please fish responsibly this time of year. Don't hammer the fish too hard and please return them quickly to the water near where you hook them. We want to ensure a successful spawn in all of our favorite spots!

Mountain Brook Trout Streams

The brook trout fishing is peak right now! Bugs are flying and fish are jumping. Dry fly action continues to get better each day. Any attractor patterns in size 14-16 should work fine as the fish haven't been too picky. Try a nymph dropper and fish deep to pick up a few of the bigger fish down below! Reports have been excellent from the Shenandoah National Park all the way over into West VA! Have fun out there!

Spring Creeks

Mossy, Beaver, and Smith Creek are all fishing very well right now. Deep jigged streamers and big heavy nymphs are sticking the big boys. The public stretch of Mossy has been producing some really big fish this winter. Beaver Creek is fully stocked and fishing well if you can get a permit. Susie Q Farm is booking heavily for the springtime but there are plenty of open weekdays to enjoy if you call us soon! Have fun out there!
