I have seen a good friend of mine catch trout on a Shenandoah Silver Ghost Streamer size 10 with a Mr. Rapidan Olive Soft Hackle size 16 on a 24 inch 5X dropper below it. Fish this set-up across stream with a slow twitching action on streams such as Big Stoney Creek and Bullpasture. Often the largest trout take the soft hackle dropper. These streams are low and clear.
In October the VA Department of Game and Inland Fisheries will start stocking the local trout streams again.
Stream Conditions: The local streams such as Big Stoney Creek (Edinburg), Mill Creek (Mount Jackson), and Passage Creek (Fort Valley) are very 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.
