Fly Fishing

A Virginia fly fishing vacation to remember

Fly fishing

Some of the best Virginia fly fishing is offered on the beautiful private waters of the Cascades Stream. Anglers will experience a renowned trout fishery through some of the area’s most scenic landscape. Catch and release only and fly fishing is preferred.

Our Orvis-trained guides are available for fly fishing lessons or guiding services. Licenses, stream use permits and fishing gear are available at Allegheny Activities located on the shop corridor. Two-hour to full-day packages include stream permit, all equipment, and guide service. 

Advanced reservations for guide services and lessons are recommended by calling Allegheny Activities at (540) 839-7760. Available year-round, weather permitting.

GUIDED FLY FISHING

Join one of our seasoned guides for a two-hour, 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

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 Rier 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.
