Virginia is not widely known for its musky fishing. Despite common knowledge, many of our warmwater rivers have true strain musky. Virginia Department of Game has been stocking fingerling musky for over 30 years and populations have become very well established. We target the Shenandoah and James Rivers for musky, however they are also found in the New River, Clinch, Potomac, and many of our lakes and reservoirs. Fishing for these giants is typically best from May through February with peaks in July and then again in December. Musky fishing is demanding and not for the timid. These fish can be difficult to catch and typically require a lot of effort and determination. Fly rods, baitcasting rods, and all tackle, flies, and gear is provided. We highly recommend getting started with the baitcasting gear to see how fish are reacting before attempting to throw large flies all day. We can accomodate up to 2 anglers on our boats. Come experience some of the most thrilling freshwater fishing you can find anywhere!
Rates vary by season please call ahead
