Many natural sculpin minnows are very active in the large trout streams at this time of the year. Fishing the Murray's Black Madtom/Sculpin size 8 below the riffles with a slow stripping action which crawls it along the stream bottom will help you catch many large trout.
Stream Conditions: All of the local trout stocked trout streams such as Big Stoney Creek (Edinburg), Passage Creek (Fort Valley) and Mill Creek (Mount Jackson) are clear and fishable.
A note from VDGIF: Due to construction/renovation activities at the Front Royal Fish Hatchery the Delayed Harvest Area on Passage Creek (Warren Co.) will not be stocked and closed to fishing until further notice. This is due to stocking and angler access constraints and public safety concerns. It is anticipated to be re-opened by October 1, 2020.
