Default Re: Fly Fishing Shenandoah NP

I'm not familiar with the cabins either, so I can't help much there. I usually like to camp anyway, but one problem with backcountry camping in the Park is that no fires are allowed. Being someone who loves a good camp fire, that takes half the fun away. You can have fires at the car camping spots on the Rapidan and I think at the campgrounds up on Skyline Drive, just not in the backcountry.

Switch fisher is right about the drought this summer. The Park streams all got extremely low...but the water levels are in much better shape now after some recent rains. I sorta made the assumption that you were talking about a spring trip anyway...the fishing will be pretty slow until at least mid March..although the warm spell this week will help things out.
