Southwest VA Fly Fishing

Southwestern Virginia boasts some of the state’s best opportunities for Trout & Smallmouth Bass on the fly. Our SWVA Overnight fly fishing trip is an excellent way to dip your toes into fly fishing for the first time or hone in your skills while fishing a combination of private & public waters in the area.

Our base camp for the week is located in Lebanon, Virginia. We will stay in a cabin provided by Riverbound Xstream that sits on the banks of Big Cedar Creek. This stocked private section of stream is teeming with Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, and a few Smallmouth Bass mixed in. The fish of a lifetime is only a stones throw away from the front door.

Throughout the week we will hop between several other public and private sections of water in search of big fish!

Dependent on river flows, campers will float on oar rigged rafts, with fishing frames to cover as much water as possible. Our location gives us great access to the South Holston River Tailwater in Tennessee. The famed tailwater boasts 20″+ Brown trout and may be your best chance at a true trophy fish! We have high hopes in hitting a morning bug hatch, to experience something like a sulfur hatch is a wonderful way to show some true “match the hatch” dry fly fishing.

We limit this week to eight campers to insure everyone gets plenty of one on one time with our experienced staff as campers will learn casting techniques, knots, and how to choose and fish the right flies. Fly tying is always a big hit as well! We hope to pass along the knowledge to each of our campers to be self sufficient fly anglers by the end of the week.

So join us for a great week of fun in the sun, big adventures, exciting experiences, and life long memories with new friends.

Lodging/Food: We will be staying at a cabin just outside of Lebanon, VA that sits alongside of a private section of a trout stream. Campers will have the option to bunk up in the cabin or tent camp in the field along the banks of the stream and enjoy sleeping under the stars while still having full access to a bathroom and shower. All meals will be prepared by our staff utilizing the full kitchen within the cabin. The cabin has a large covered porch where we will eat most meals and expect to enjoy some s’mores by the campfire at the end of the day.

Transportation: Transportation from Richmond to Lebanon available or anywhere along the I-64/81 corridor between Richmond and Roanoke. Campers can also be dropped off on location the first day of camp. Please contact us if you have any questions about transportation.
