"Roberts knows the area waters with the sort of familiarity which can only come from a lifetime of angling, and he has just the sort of laid-back personality that works equally well for putting novices at ease or offering tips to seasoned veterans. '' Jim Casada, The Angling Review
2021 MARCH FISHING OVERVIEW --March on Va. trout streams is a turn around month for as all things in Nature in and along them start to waken up from the cold Winter. Aquatic insect activity starts to ramp up as water temps in our freestone streams ease up to the 47 -50 degree range usually after the middle of the month. More Caddis , Mayfly and Winter Stonefly hatches bring on trout activity. March flows usually are some of the best of the year and are especially colorful this year from the snowmelt. It is not a bad idea to check the USGS site for stream flow info in planning your trip this month. This is an excellent month to visit our mountain headwater streams especially if the larger streams are too high from rain events. The bigger trout in these are on the prowl and it is one of the best times to catch them even if the water is a little milky looking. Spring creeks with their warmer waters are always good now. Streamer fishing is always good in March especially in the higher flows. The Special Reg areas have good numbers of trout in March.
