Smallmouth Bass Streams Fly Fishing Report - July 10, 2018

We are catching many nice bass below the heavy riffles on Sculpin Minnow Streamers. Our two most effective flies are the new Murray's Sculpin Marauder size 4 and Murray's Heavy Black Madtom Sculpin size 4. Cast these across the stream below the riffles and swim them back along the stream bottom by stripping them 6 inches every 10 seconds. The North Fork of the Shenandoah River, downstream from access point 18 (Meem's Bottom) and the South Fork of the Shenandoah River at access point 13 (Fosters Landing) are producing many large bass on these flies.

Mountain Trout Streams Fly Fishing Report - Update July 6, 2018

The upper sections of the Mountain Trout Streams are fishable; however, the lower sections are too high for good fishing. Some of my customers are getting excellent action by fishing the small feeder brooks which enter the main mountain streams close to the top of the mountains off the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. Frequently, a short hike will bring you outstanding fishing. Productive dry flies now are the Murray's Sulphur size 16, Spirit of Pittsford Mills size 16, and Murray's Purple Dun size 16.
