Virginia Fly Fishing Shop and Guide Services
Come experience the best fly fishing Virginia has to offer! Our fly shop is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley only minutes away from spring creek brown trout on the famous Mossy Creek. We are also surrounded by wild brook trout in the freestone mountain streams of The George Washington National Forest and Shenandoah National Park. We fish for Smallmouth bass, musky, and carp on the Shenandoah and James Rivers. Our shop also manages many stretches of private trophy trout water on local spring creeks and rivers. Private and corporate fly fishing lessons and clinics are available at our schools in Harrisonburg or Wintergreen Resort, Virginia. Our store stocks Orvis, Simms, Patagonia, Fishpond, Redington, Umpqua, Montana Fly, Brodin, C&F, Rio, NRS, Tenkara, Renzetti, Wapsi, Rumpf, Spirit River, Kreinik, and many more great products. We have the largest selection of fly tying material in the state. Whether you are looking for big browns, rainbows, or brook trout, our expert staff and guides will help you plan a trip to remember.

Current Local Fishing Conditions


James and Shenandoah Rivers

The Shenandoah and James Rivers are at great levels right now and the musky fishing has been pretty consistent. We are fishing big profile flies right now on full sinking lines. Our guides are available to put you on your next freshwater beast! Fish with confidence with Virginia's most experienced and largest freshwater guide service!

Mountain Brook Trout Streams

Recent rainfall has really helped keep water levels running at average flows this winter up in the mountains. Reports have been good all through the year and we have a few strong year classes that should allow for another good season for big brookies in the spring.

Spring Creeks

Susie Q Farm is open and has been booked almost every day. Fishing has been excellent! Give us a call to book a day in the solitude of one of the Valley's best limestone spring creeks. Mossy Creek, Beaver Creek, South River Upper, Spring Run, and Buffalo Creek all have good water flow right now and temps are perfect for good fishing.

Managed Trout Water

VDGIF is out stocking in full force. Water flow is great all over Virginia right now and our public waters have all been stocked. Keep an eye on the VDGIF website for updates daily and load up on split shot, strike indicators, and your favorite attractor nymphs and streamers!
