Recommended Flies: An effective technique is to fish a Mr. Rapidan Parachute Dry size 14 on a Classic 7 1/2ft 5X leader with a Mr. Rapidan Brown Soft Hackle Nymph size 14 on a 3 foot dropper below it. Hot spots are the runs right below the riffles.
Stream Conditions: All of the local stocked trout streams and delayed harvest areas including Passage Creek (
Recommended Gear: I am using a 5X Leader with a 7 1/2ft to 9ft fly rod with a 4 to 6 weight fly line.
