Delayed Harvest and Stocked Trout Streams: These streams are muddy and too high for good fishing.
Mountain Trout Streams: These streams are fishable by coming into the heads from the Skyline Drive.
Smallmouth Bass Streams: Both the North and South Fork of the Shenandoah River are muddy and too high for good fishing. 2000cfs goes over many low water bridges on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.
Delayed Harvest and Large Stocked Trout Streams: "Big flies attract big trout" is a good ploy to fish large streamers deeply in the large pools in the streams such as Big Cedar Creek, Big Stoney Creek and the lower part of North Creek. Excellent flies for this fishing is Shenk's Black Sculpin size 8, Spuddler Streamer size 8 and Shenk's White Steamer size 8. If the current is very fast, I use a Scientific Anglers Sonar Sink Tip III Sinking Tip Fly Line with a Murray's Fluorocarbon 6 foot Sinking Line Leader.
Mountain Trout Streams: A good way to catch the trout feeding on the natural little yellow stonefly drys and nymphs is to fish a Little Yellow Stonefly Dry size 16 or a Murray's Little Yellow Stonefly Dry size 16 with a Murray's Miracle Yellow Stonefly Nymph size 16 on a twenty inch 6X dropper below it. Fish these upstream dead drift to cover the whole pool.
