Murray's Magnum Darter Streamer, Murray's Magnum Creek Chub Streamer and Murray's Magnum Hog Sucker Streamer.

There are many of these feeding stations downstream from access point #3 (Burnshire Bridge) on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River and upstream from access point #11 (Seakford)...

Shenandoah Silver Ghost Simple Streamer, Murray's Caddis Larva and Murray's Olive Magic Caddis Pupa. Delayed Harvest and Stocked Trout Streams: The recent rains have raised the streams in some areas and we are getting our best fishing by using Sonar Sink Tip III Sinking Tip Fly Line with our Murray's Fluorocarbon 6 foot 3X Sinking Line Leader.

Mr. Rapidan Parachute, Murray's Olive Magic Caddis Pupa and Mr. Rapidan Olive Delta Wing Caddis Mountain Trout Streams: The upper reaches of the mountain trout streams in the Appalachian Mountains and Blue Ridge Mountains are producing excellent olive caddis hatches and Epeorus pleuralis mayfly hatches.

Murray's Heavy Shiner Streamer, Shenk's White Streamer and Murray's Heavy Chub Streamer Smallmouth Bass Streams: In addition to the back eddies I mentioned last week, we are catching some nice size smallmouth bass in the deep pockets downstream of the river-crossing ledges.

Also access point #10 (Burner's Bottom) and access point #12 (Good's Landing) on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River have this type water.  Effective flies now are Murray's Heavy...

Shenandoah Silver Ghost Simple Streamer, Murray's Caddis Larva and Murray's Olive Magic Caddis Pupa Delayed Harvest and Stocked Trout Streams: The browns and rainbows in these streams are feeding heavily on both minnows and natural nymphs.

Then attach a Murray's Caddis Larva size 14 or a Murray's Olive Magic Caddis Pupa size 14 to a twenty four piece of 5X tippet material coming off the bend of the streamer hook with an improved clinch knot.
