Wow...new to this great site! I am a novice heading to the Shenandoah NP next week and was hoping someone could share any experiences. There appears to be ample opportunities to fish some small mountain streams. Can anyone suggest some patterns/techniques to try? Any help would be appreciated. Thx

I would also suggest the Royal Wulff. I have even had luck with small midge patterns in small mountain streams in New Hampshire. I not positive that the midges will work because the river seemed like the fish would eat anything. But try the Royal Wulff first then work in some different patterns. P.S. In most mountain streams the fish are very jumpy so be quiet and fish behind cover.
