Starting tomorrow October 1 the VA DWR will start stocking streams throughout the state with nice rainbows and some brown trout. The local stocked trout streams are at perfect water levels. For the latest updates on what streams have been stocked, check out the VA DWR website. Be sure to have your freshwater fishing license, trout license, and if you are going to be in the National Forest then get your National Forest license as well.
A Casual Dress Nymph in a size 12 is my go to fly for this time of year. Fish this deeply below the riffles on a Classic 9ft 4X leader.
