Bath, Highland and Rockbridge streams need some rain or snow run off , levels are down.
February Outlook- After staying cooped in for the most part of the winter lots of fishermen need a day or 2 on the stream by now, weather permitting. February usually has a few decent days to fish, days in the mid 30's to upper 40's can actually be rewarding. While freestone water temps can still range from the 30's to upper 40's you can still catch trout. Of course spring creeks are great spots with their more consistent range in the upper 40's to 54 degree range will see more active fish. While nymph patterns are big catching a few on dry flies this month can be especially gratifying. BWO, midge and winter stonefly imitations in the #18-24 range. Some of the higher altitude stream access roads might have some ice on the north side.
Special Trip This Month- Great for beginners where we get you started learning equipment, casting, knot tying, fish identification, basic entomolgy, proper catch and release and more on a mountain pond stocked with Brook, Rainbow and Brown Trout. Finish up on a nice Va. trout stream as you learn how to catch trout in moving water on dry and wet flies. This one will get you started on the right path to becoming a good flyfisherman, you will learn things that will stay with you for life.
