Fly Fish Goshen Pass

Goshen Pass - Search Nearby - Added by Kenton Steryous

Considered to be one of the most beautiful spots in Virginia, The Goshen Pass is hard to beat. In addition to the Blueridge Parkway, motorists will find the drive on Route 39 through the Pass to be one of the most scenic around.

The fly fishing on the Maury River is one of a kind through the Goshen Pass. The Pass is littered with huge boulders, which actually makes it possible to fish without waders, although it's much easier and more enjoyable with waders.

From Lexington, VA, take Route 39 towards Goshen for approximately 15 miles, at which point you'll start to see plenty of pull out options for river access. There's also a picnic shelter/way station with several parking spots and a couple of porta johns. This area is great for families with plenty of boulder hopping for the kids, but I'd recommend bringing an extra change of clothes, especially for young boys!! Two miles passed the picnic shelter is an easy to miss gravel drive that leads to a parking lot and a swinging bridge for access to the other side of the river. Make the effort to come here once, and you'll be coming back time and time again.
