Virginia Fly Fishing Reports and Conditions

6/18 Giant spring creek trout, musky, and carp! Oh MY! Fishing is excellent in the Shenandoah Valley right now. Pick a species and hit the water!!

James and Shenandoah River

The James and Shenandoah are currently running at normal flow and clear! Get out and enjoy some of the best fishing of the year! Peak summer bass fishing will last through mid September. Give us a call to book your trip today! We are loaded down with Walt's Poppers hand tied by the man himself. We have hundreds of his poppers in stock so load up for the season. Ck Baitfish, Crittermites, Clawdads, Wiggle Minnows, and deer hair bugs are in high demand. We have a good stock of all popular flies but with the industry shortages in play they may not last the season. Take advantage of the quality water levels we have now while they last! We have a lot of thunderstorms in the forecast. Carp, musky, and bass fishing has been great the past few weeks!

Mountain Brook Trout Streams

The Shenandoah National Park streams and GW Forest creeks and rivers are fishing very well. Peak season brook trout fishing is among us folks. Enjoy the nice weather and perfect water flows while you can! Take your favorite dry flies, nymphs, and streamers and have at it. Enjoy it while it lasts. The afternoon thunderstorms should keep creeks flowing fairly well over the next few weeks. Watch out for deer ticks. They have been bad this year and many folks are contracting Lyme's disease. Have fun and be safe up in the hills this summer!

Spring Creeks

Beaver Creek, Upper South River, Buffalo, Coursey, and Susie Q Farm are all dropping and clearing up nicely. Mossy is still a bit stained but we CRUSHED fish out there yesterday. The streamer fishing has been incredible. Take the big rods, flies, and tippet and fish aggressively for the big boys. Have fun out there!
