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.

We're Brian & Colby Trow, and we opened Mossy Creek Fly Fishing in Harrisonburg Virginia in 2003. For the past 8 years we have been working hard to offer the best products and services to our customers and clients. Our success has been attributed to our honest, hardworking, and talented crew of shop staff and guides. It is our goal to continue to improve, restore, and enhance the fishing in our area as well as provide anglers with the best possible fly fishing experience in Virginia!
James and Shenandoah Rivers
We are back out on the Shenandoah and James every day. The fishing has been great. Watch out for afternoon thunderstorms as we have been getting wet most days. Stock up on your CK Baitfish, Clawdads, and topwater flies and hit the river!
Mountain Brook Trout Streams
The brook trout fishing is on fire right now! Take your favorite attractor dry flies up into the mountains and have a ball! Dry dropper rigs, small streamers, split shot, indicators, and plenty of floatant will be important to have along. We are using 9' 4-6X leaders right now depending on the size of the fly we are throwing. We have over 50,000 flies in stock now for the season! Stop by, say hi, and get some local intel at the shop 7 days a week!
The tricos and sulphurs are in full tilt on the creeks right now. We are having incredible dry fly fishing and the public stretches of Mossy and Beaver are on fire! Fishing early AM and late PM is great right now. Enjoy the premo water conditions while the season is in peak!
Managed Trout Water
Alright folks, VDGIF will only be stocking for another few weeks. Hit the Delayed Harvest streams while the fishing is good. In under 1 month, South River, North River, Passage, and your other favorite DH streams will be open for harvest. Take your attractor nymphs, streamers, and dries out and enjoy the weather and quality water conditions while they last!
