I had a chance to get home and fly fish in the Shenandoah national park and Shenandoah valley for a couple of days. Shenandoah valley fly fishing involves a lot of hiking, wade fishing and or drift boat fishing. The weather was OK and the fishing was great. I only had a couple of opportunities to get out with the boys from www.murraysflyshop.com but when I did it was on.
There is nothing big about the trout in Shenandoah nation park but native fish that are thousands of years old and readily taking dry flies makes this fishing as fun as any I have ever done. The beautiful mountain streams can put the most seasoned fishers into a trance. We fished the Rapidan river in Madison county VA on this trip but there are over 50 fish able streams in the park!
Guide John Colman with a nice small mouth on the North Fork of the Shenandoah river. Though the water temperature was colder than we would have liked the fish still cooperated. We caught Small mouth bass, Large mouth bass, sunfish and fall fish.
