Trout Guiding

The Mossy Creek Fly Fishing guide service covers rivers, streams, spring creeks, and private waters from the George Washington National Forest across the Valley floor to the Shenandoah National Park. Virginia has over 2,300 miles of wild trout streams considered to be some of the best brookie water in the East, outside of New England. These streams are located in the higher areas of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains where the water stays cool, oxygenated, and there is sufficient cover. We offer Full or Half day trips into these secluded streams for wild brookies.

We also guide on Virginia's best Delayed Harvest and Special Regulation streams within an hour of the shop. These are some of Virginia's most popular trout fisheries offering superb fly fishing. Although trout in the 8-16 inch range abound in these streams, there is always a chance for a bigger fish over 20 inches! Fishing can be excellent year round with a peak season in March-June. The public stretch of Mossy Creek fishes well year round. Brian lives on the public stretch of Mossy and our guides live only minutes from this famous spring creek. A permit must be obtained from the VDGIF office in Verona prior to trips on Mossy Creek.

Looking to land a trophy brown, rainbow, or brook trout? Mossy Creek Fly Fishing's expert guides can lead you to the best fly fishing in Virginia. We offer half or full day trips to Susie Q Farm, Stoney Creek at Wintergreen Resort, 2 private stretches of Mossy Creek and 2 private streches of Beaver Creek. These properties are managed exclusively by our shop. Fishing pressure is kept to a minimum and all of them are regulated as fly fishing only, catch and release, barbless fisheries. Most of these fisheries are available for guiding year round. Booking is recommended at least 1 month in advance during the spring months. Give us a call to book today!
