The natural grass hoppers are large enough to bring up many of the large trout. Big Stoney Creek and the Bullpasture both hold some large rainbows that take natural hoppers regularly. My favorite fly is Ed Shenk's Letort Hopper size 12. Be sure to fish Close to the banks on windy days when the naturals are getting blown into the stream.
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.
