The Conway River, known as Middle River by locals, flows through both the Rapidan Wildlife Management Area as well as the Shenandoah National Park. It’s the sort of water that brookie anglers love to fish—but don’t be too surprised if you pull out the occasional brown. Perhaps more aptly called a creek, the Conway has steep grades and large rocks that eager anglers will need to negotiate carefully. The water here is often low and almost always clear, giving the local brook trout every advantage. You’ll find pools alongside the rock-hewn banks, where the trout lie in wait for a meal to float by. Types of Fish: You’ll find rainbow trout here along with the occasional brown. The Conway used to be brook trout water, so you might catch a brookie every now and then. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
