Every March I head for the same stretch of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River because it seldom lets me down. A seventy foot ledge lies across the river protecting a 6-ft deep trough just below the ledge. Most of the large bass seek feeding stations right below the ledge. Depending on the depth of the water I wade and fish all the way across the river if possible. A high water level causes me to wade downstream on the near side of the river. This deep cut continues downstream 200 feet and by using a swing nymphing technique I catch many nice bass. Fish your flies in this whole area with your flies as deeply and slowly as you possibly can.
