There are presently heavy hatches of Epeorus pleuralis mayflies from noon until dusk in the upper sections of the mountain trout streams. The Mr. Rapidan Parachute size 14 and Spirit of Pittsford Mills size 14 are great at this time. If you hit these streams in the morning, the Mr. Rapidan Emerger size 14 and Mr. Rapidan Olive Soft Hackle Nymph size 14 are great fished upstream below the riffles.

This leader contains two Scientific Anglers Indicators.

These access points are listed in my book, Trout Fishing in the...

This is a good time to explore streams such as the South Fork of Piney River and the Lower Pedlar River with nymphs such as the Murray's Skunk Rod Kill Nymph size 8 and Mr. Rapidan Olive Soft Hackle Nymph size 10. There are many large trout in the deep pools in these streams that will take these large nymphs. Fish these flies upstream dead drift right along the streambottom using the Murray's Trout Nymph 9 foot Leader to help detect the strikes. Stoney Creek and Mill Creek were stocked on Thursday, March 8, 2018.
