There is good dry hopper fishing now on many large trout streams especially on the Hidden Valley of the Jackson and Big Stoney Creek. I especially like Ed Shenk's Letort Hopper size 12 because it produces a light pattern on the surface of the stream very close to that of the real grasshopper. These streams are low and clear so be sure to wade carefully so you do not spook the fish.
Stream Conditions: The local streams such as Big Stoney Creek (Edinburg), Mill Creek (Mount Jackson), and Passage Creek (Fort Valley) are low and clear. Wade carefully so you do not spook the fish. Please keep in mind that these streams are not stocked during the summer months.
Stop by the fly shop in Edinburg, VA and check out our master map with access to fish the local streams.
