Since the little yellow stonefly is such a heavy hatch in our mountain streams and it last so long there are always an abundance of its adults and nymph available to the trout for at least two months. An effective angling tactic is to fish a Murray's Little Yellow Stonefly Dry size 16 on a Classic 7 1/2 6X with a Murray's Little Yellow Stonefly Nymph on a two foot 6X dropper below it. This rig is very effective when the hatch is heavy and when it is sparse.
All of the Shenandoah National Park streams are in great shape. As of right now the only access to the Park is off the Skyline Drive. For all openings and closures see their website at https://www.nps.gov/shen/phase-one.htm
