Fly Fishing Stewart's Creek Virginia
Stewart's Creek is a very popular Virginia trout fishing
destination. It is strictly "catch and release" using
"single, artificial lures/flies only". It flows through the
Stewart's Creek Wildlife Management Area. It flows for
almost five miles in Virginia in the WMA and into North
Carolina. Its a tributary of the Yadkin River.

Stewart's Creek is formed by the confluence of its North
and South Forks. The stream has a good population of
brook trout. The lower end has more moderate flows
and isn't quite as steep as the upper sections. The
upper section has continuous plunge pools, each of
which are full of brook trout. The higher the elevation,
the steeper the declination of the stream gets. Fly
fishing Stewart's Creek in its upper section takes a lot of
effort climbing.

The upper part of the South Fork on Sam's Knob can
be accessed from just off of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Virginia's #715 to #975 will access this part of the
stream which contains native brook trout. This area was
once almost destroyed by bad timber cutting practices.
The land was purchased by the state of Virginia and
saved. The area has recovered nicely.

The season runs year-round
Trout can be caught on warm winter days.
Spring is the best time for fly fishing Stewarts' Creek.
Summertime is okay in the higher elevations.
Fall is a beautiful time to fish the stream.
