Welcome to Mossy Creek Fly Fishing

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 James and Shenandoah have been running low and clear for the past few weeks. The smallmouth season is over for us and we are primarily targeting musky now through next spring. Give us a call to book a day on the water to catch a true trophy freshwater fish!

Mountain Brook Trout Streams

The brook trout streams have been fishing well when water levels are decent. The rains this week should help out water flows. We will be fishing for brookies over the next few weeks and then giving them a break through the winter.

Spring Creeks

Beaver Creek, Mossy Creek, South River, Buffalo Creek, Spring Run, and Smith Creek will all benefit from the rain this weekend. They have been low and clear but fishing well. Mossy and South have been stocked with thousands of fingerlings. The big boys are out chewing on them, so grab your big sticks and chuck some meat.

Managed Trout Water

Sugar Hollow Reservoir, The Pedlar, Sherando, South River Waynesboro, Bullpasture, Back Creek, Jackson, Robinson, Tye, Hawksbill, and Passage Creek have all been stocked. Grab your favorite attractor flies, split shot, stike indicators, and go have some fun this fall! Keep an eye on the VDGIF website for updates.
