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. Come experience Virginia Fly Fishing at its best.

Current Local Fishing Conditions


James and Shenandoah Rivers

The James and Shenandoah are finally down to normal summer levels and fishing great. Big fish have been seen cruising the shallow ledges in the afternoons looking for bugs along the shade lines. Get out and enjoy the last bit of the season while it lasts! We are almost full for the season so call us soon to book a float trip with the family!

Mountain Brook Trout Streams

The Shenandoah National Park streams and GW Forest creeks and rivers are low and clear. Afternoon thunderstorms have been keeping us busy fishing for brookies this summer. The cool weather has kept water temps down an average of 7-8 degrees this year! It is looking like we may have a good fall fishing season this year if water levels hold!

Spring Creeks

Beaver Creek, Upper South River, Buffalo, Coursey, Mossy Creek, and Susie Q Farm are all low and clear but fishing well. Terrestrial season is in full swing with large grasshoppers all over the place. We have been experiencing incredible trico hatches in the morning and the Hex's are out in the late evening hours.

Managed Trout Water

It's open season folks. That being said, South River, North River, Bullpasture, and the Jackson in the special reg area are still fishing well. Go satisfy your trout fishing needs soon before water levels or meat fishermen wear down population levels.
