Catch of the day

There are a variety fish to be caught in our area, here are some of the most common.


Brook trout, the only trout species native to Virginia, account for 80 percent of the wild trout in the state. The Jackson and Smith rivers are the largest rivers in Virginia that offer fishing for wild brown and rainbow trout.  Both rivers can be waded, but floating these rivers gives you the best experience.


The musky is often referred to as “the fish of 10,000 casts” but a guided trip with Matt will improve your odds. They’re present in the New, James, and Shenandoah Rivers in Virginia. Muskies are solitary fish that use aggressive ambush strategies to feed. It’s certain you’ll never forget the first one you land with a fly rod.

Striped Bass

The best striper fishing occurs each Spring (April, May) when they move from the ocean and reservoirs to spawn in the freshwater reaches of tidal and non tidal rivers. Landlocked stripers migrate up tributary rivers of larger reservoirs to spawn. Five to 10 lb. fish are common with 10 to 20 lb. fish landed each season.

Smallmouth Bass

One of hardest fighting freshwater fish to be caught on a fly rod. Smallmouth weigh between 1 and 5 pounds, on average, and can exceed 8 pounds. They’re naturally aggressive and eager to take a streamer or popper.  Best smallmouth bass fishing in VA is June through September.

"This was my 1st time fly-fishing for Smallmouth Bass. Matt is a great teacher and took the time to go over some techniques to assure I caught the most fish."

"Matt Miles knows how to prepare for a fishing trip! He observes the river conditions and will make changes to original plans if necessary in order to give his customers the best opportunity to catch fish. His friendliness and courtesy is matched by his knowledge and skill."
