Located just across the divide from our fly shop, the West Fork is a sublime little trout stream, with crystalline pools so clear you can count the cobblestones six feet down. Beginning high along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the river follows Hwy. 215 on its steep descent towards Lake Logan. The uppermost portion of the creek is steep, tight and designated as Wild Trout water, allowing single hook, artificial lures only. Between Queen Creek and Lake Logan, the West Fork is designated as Delayed Harvest, which is catch-and-release from October through May and full of stocked trout. Either stretch is fine dry-and-dropper water, but please mind private property downstream of Sunburst Campground.
