Join one of our seasoned guides for a four-hour or full day fly fishing experience on our private Cascades stream. This Blue Ribbon stream has stocked and wild rainbow trout and is ideal for any skill level.

Seasonal fly fishing is also available on the Upper and Lower Jackson River. Spend a half day or full day fishing for rainbow, brown and occasionally native brook trout which inhabit this area. Full day outings include lunch.


Float Fishing is a unique form of fly fishing that allows two anglers along with a guide to experience several miles of beautiful river. Fishing is for trout on the lower Jackson River below Lake Moomaw. Anglers should plan for a full day of fishing and fun and should be able to get in and out of the boat and wade through shallow areas. Lunch is included. This activity is seasonal and available starting late spring when the water levels on the river begin to drop. A Virginia fishing license and National Forestry stamp are required.
