Beetle patterns are good right now along the meadow and spring creeks, hoppers are not quite as plentiful this year but still are a good way to go.
08/29/2015 -While the waters are still low we have been taking some very nice Rainbows up to 22'' mid-day on dries which is hard to do most times in the hottest part of the summer. Tricos are still active. Water temps for August so far have been excellent. Our trophy waters are fishing fine right now. E-mail me 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.
8/18 2015 AUGUST OUTLOOK - Fishing has been good despite lower flows in a lot of the local watersheds. We have had enough rain though to keep the waters fresh and healthy for the trout. Any time after a rain event , i.e. , light or medium shower this time of year, will see increased activity and more energetic fish. August can be a slow down stressor type month for trout but not so far this year. Any time we can take a trout on top of the water mid-day like we are doing now is a great sign of this. Though the days have been warmer these can be offset by the cooler 58-68 degree nights we have had so far. Terrestrial patterns including cricket, ant, beetle, inch worm, hopper and several more are great right now. Tricos are active on the Spring creeks. September will see much better water temps after the 2nd week.
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.
