In most cases, yes. You'll need a Virginia freshwater fishing license to fish public waters. A trout stamp is also required in state managed trout waters. Our private streams do not require a license.
Will we go on public waters or private waters?
Either one! Virginia offers miles of public mountain streams for catch and release fly fishing adventures. Alternatively, head to one of our private, stocked streams with abundant fish to be caught. Our local waters offer a chance to catch brook trout, smallmouth bass, and other types of fish offering endless opportunities to improve your fly fishing skills.
Can I bring my family?
Of course! We love teaching children and families of all ages.
