Mossy Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Outdoor writer Dan Genest once described Mossy Creek to me as “an enigma meandering through a meadow”—and to date, his is the best description I’ve ever heard of this water. Mossy, as it is lovingly referred to by fly anglers in the Old Dominion, is arguably the most famous trout stream in Virginia, and with good reason.

Anglers regularly catch trout in the 20-inch range here, as well as fish that exceed six pounds. Types of Fish: The river is famous for its big browns. 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."
