Fishing Report, South Fork of the Shenandoah: Week of October 2.
The smallmouth/largemouth pictured above are just four of the many clients caught during the spring, summer, and early fall of 2017. Currently, the South Fork of the Shenandoah is extremely low and clear which is typical for this time of year. As a result of the low flow the bite has slowed and we have ended the smallmouth fishing and will now focus our attention on catching the apex predator in the river system, musky. As the air temperature and water temperature drop conditions will become prime for catching this elusive freshwater fish.
With rain in the forecast and the mountain streams filling, we will also refocus our attention on the brook trout. With fall foliage right around the corner this is a great time to get in the mountains and chase these beautiful fish.
We also have dates available to fish for rainbow and brown trout on some of the best spring creeks/rivers Virginia has to offer. These trophy size fish never fail to impress even the most seasoned angler.
