A Nice Holdover 18'' Bath Winter Rainbow
03/05/2015 Rising Water Levels-- Rain is back today and most streams are running higher and colored as it has melted most of the snow. Snow is in the forecast later today, still some access road issues in the higher elevations. A warm up begins on Saturday and continues into next week with temps in the upper 50's.Fishing conditions will greatly improve with improved flows. Check theUSGS link to the left to look at current water flows.
March Outlook- March weather can bring some fine fishing days and actually can see some of the best water flows of the season with streams running beautiful emerald colors from the snow run off. Our guided trips are in full swing. Early part of the month can still see some cooler water temps (36-lower 40's) but as the month progresses we see water temps ramp up a bit to more favorite conditions for hatching insects. Nymphing & streamer fishing are still mostly the way to go though the last week of the month can see some improved top water action with olives,caddis , small stones and blue quills. Lots of trout have carried over in the Special Reg and Delayed Harvest streams and these trout have acclimated well to more natural diets. Native brookies action picks up later in the month. It's not a bad time to study the Va trout maps on our Flyfishing page.
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.
