Big Wilson Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"What makes Big Wilson Creek a mountain trout angler’s dream? This stream, carrying clean, cold water in the shadow of Mount Rogers, the state’s highest peak, boasts a healthy population of wild rainbow trout. Farther up Big Wilson near Grayson Highlands State Park, you’ll also run into wild brook trout. But what sets Big Wilson apart is the scenery—it’s simply breathtaking. Perhaps this water should be called Wilson’s Big Beautiful Creek instead.

Types of Fish: Looking for wild rainbows and native brookies in a pristine mountain setting? You’ve found them. 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."
