Default Fishing the Shenandoah National Park

Did a little fishing in the Shenandoah National Park this morning. Caught 49 brook trout in all. Almost all on a foam ant. I ended up hiking probably 6 miles today so I'll sleep good tonight.

I love the SNP, best fly fishing in the world. How were the water levels? I'm not going to ask for which stream that is, but out of curiosity, is East or West slopes?

This is one thing I regret not doing in my seminary days back east. Should have made a trip there and stayed awhile. I drove through it, but didn't stay and didn't fish.

Water levels were good. Certainly adequate. That is a West slope stream. I do most of my fishing on the East slope at some less pressured streams. This particular stream is along a very popular hiking trail, near a campground and can get local pressure from below. I wouldn't fish it on a weekend, but Fridays are OK. I seemed to have the place to myself on a beautiful sunny day.
