Virginia Fly Fishing Reports and Conditions

12/28/14 The winter trout and musky season has been excellent folks! Get out and enjoy the mild weather we have been experiencing.

James and Shenandoah River

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. We primarily stick to the spring creeks and musky fishing through the winter, but there is some quality fishing to be done in the mountains during these warm spells. Take your favorite nymphs and small streamers and enjoy the solitude in the woods!

Spring Creeks

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. BWO's and midges are hatching almost every day. Be sure to take light tippets, soft rods, and plenty of dry flies in case you see a hatch. Plan on fishing nymphs and streamers for the next few months if you don't see any bug life. Sculpin patterns, crayfish, and big baitfish patterns will be the go-to flies for the winter and early spring season.
