The mountain trout streams are holding up well for this time of the year with good water levels and stream temperatures. The trout are wary so use a cautious approach and gentle presentations. A Murray's Classic 9 foot 6X or 7X Leader helps me fool these trout especially with slack line casts. The Murray's Oakworm Dry size 16, Murray's Moth Dry size 14 and Murray's Housefly size 14 are all excellent now.
The North and South Fork of the Shenandoah River is clear and the levels are good. Access point #1 (Route 661 off Route 11) on the North Fork of the Shenandoah is producing well. Flies that are producing well now are Murray's Tungsten Cone Head Olive Marauder size 4 and Murray's Tungsten Cone Head Pearl Marauder size 4. Fish these flies deeply between the river-crossing ledges.
The North Fork of the Shenandoah River is clear and fishable. The South Fork of the Shenandoah River is discolored.
Big Stoney Creek, Mill Creek and Passage Creek are clear and fishable.
The mountain trout streams are full but are fishable by coming into the heads of the streams from the top of the mountain.
