Default Re: Fly Fishing Shenandoah NP

We just returned from an overnight trip up to Corbin Cabin along the Hughes River last weekend (2/16). Staying at the rustic cabin was a unique experience. It is well provisioned with kitchen supplies, has a fireplace and woodburning stove, and it is located on a beautiful section of the Hughes. It was clean and we could tell that the people that use it respect it for what it is. A privy is up hill for those private moments. We didn't fish, but our TU Chapter regularly takes trips out to fish the Hughes. Closest way in is from Skyline Drive (about 1 mile down to the cabin). We came in from the Old Rag Parking Lot and it was about 4 miles of gentle to moderately steep grades with some neat river crossings. If you like to be in the woods and can deal with some rustic, you can't go wrong with Corbin Cabin. BTW, hip boots would be helpful with fishing. Also, my understanding is that fishing picks up in March when we get some scattered warm days that bring the water temps up. I was told that olive coloring is a good choice with your flys and that was consistent with the coloring of some of the invertibrates that we found in the river. Hope this helps.
