Minnow imitations are taking the larger fish. E-mail for booking a trip or call 1-800-882-1145. My Intro trips are an excellent way to introduce yourself to one of the outdoor's most fascinating sports and its ongoing learning process. We make it fun.
MAY Outlook -- Activity is at one of its peaks this month on Virginia trout streams as insect hatches ramp way up and with this the imitation game becomes more fun. Water temps enter into the prime comfort levels for trout as their quest for food ramps way up. All stream ife is prospering this month. Cloudy dark May days can see some fine hatching days. Look for your fellow predators streamside and watch for their feeding habits too. Maybe times this month on the dark days you will swallows and bats out at odd hours skimming mayflies and other insects off of the surface. Take hint. If you see an osprey on a pool it's usually a pretty good sign of a good place to fish. Working your clearing edges and eddies after a rain event with dries can be very productive. The table is set , now get out there.
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 rack.
