The deep cuts and pockets below the riffles are excellent feeding stations in the stream levels that we have now. The DWR has started stocking streams throughout the state with mostly rainbows. These trout will be feeding on big minnows so using a Murray's Madtom Sculpin size 8, Spuddler size 8 and Murray's Heavy Chub Streamer size 8 will help you land some of these trout. Fish these on a Classic 9ft 3X or 4X leader.
Make sure that you have your trout fishing license in addition to the freshwater license if you plan to fish the stocked areas. Check the daily stocking schedule on the DWR of Virginia's website to see which areas have been stocked so far.
