What a great time of the year to visit the Shenandoah Valley. Not only are the leaves turning into reds, yellows and oranges but the trout are turning on for fall feeding. After a long hot summer the cooler temps and waters have the trout active and hungry. The best Trout Guide inthe Shenandoah Valley, John Roberts, of Llewelyn Lodge is ready to take you on a fly fishing adventure you won't forget. No matter if you are a beginner or expert, John can put together a trip that you will be talking about for years to come.
John says this about October, November and December Fly Fishing:
You can't beat a flyfishing trip to a Virginia trout stream in the fall, foliage colors abound and the wildlife viewing going to and along the streams is great. The Va. Dept of Game & Inland fisheries is and will be stocking all of the Special Reg and delayed harvest streams in early October. The flows this Fall are some of the best we have seen in years. We always take the biggest trout of the season in the Oct-Nov-Dec.period The mid 60-lo 70 days are still great for taking trout on top. Just contact me and to book a trip. All of the really big trout we caught last year were taken on some inclimate type days with highs in the 40's.

Sometimes you can't count on the best weather when planning your hike but that can lead to one of the bests hikes you may take. On a recent Spring hike in Shenandoah National Park, on the Sugarloaf Trail (Mile Post 21), we had that happen to us. The Sugarloaf trail starts close to Hogback Mountain which gets you eventually to about 3500 Ft at it's highest peak. On this particular early morning the closer we got to our destination, to begin our hike, the foggier and mistier it became.
It has been a beautiful Spring in the Shenandoah Valley. A little cooler than usual but the blossoms have been fabulous. Make your reservations now at one of our fine lodgings to enjoy the rest of the Valley Spring.
