WIld Mountain Trout Fly Fishing and Virginia Smallmouth Bass. Shenandoah Valley.

During the warm months from mid-May to mid-September, fly fishing Virginia’s smaller rivers for Smallmouth Bass can be very enjoyable.  The better fishing starts from late afternoon and continues until minutes before dark.  As the sun’s rays become long, the air cools, the water of 80 degrees is quite refreshing.  Best of all, the fishing starts out good and finishes up great. 

The game species in the Shenandoah Valley rivers vary depending on a variety of factors.  For our guiding and/or instructional purposes, we narrow the selection down to Smallmouth Bass, Rock Bass (Redeye) and Redbreast Sunfish (Perch).  At times, other sunfish such as Redear and Pumpkinseed may be caught since we work to catch any game fish in the selected river.

The images to the left from left to right then bottom: Smallmouth Bass (Bronzeback), Rock Bass (Redeye) and Redbreast Sunfish (Perch, though not in the Perch family).

Angling for warm-water species is a great way for anglers to enjoy the hot summer.  Trout anglers tend to hang up their lines until October, but don’t need to as there is plenty of great warm water fishing.

Warm water angling is also a fabulous way for beginners and novices to learn.  There are more available fish, larger waters and easier casting. Click for GUIDING or INSTRUCTIONS RATES.
