Fly Fish on the Rapidan River

5 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Graves Mill Parking Area - Search Nearby - Added by Jess Fischer

With big boulders and deep plunge pools, this free stone river is perfect for catching a native brook trout and one of the best streams in Shenandoah National Park for trout fishing.

Park at the Graves Mill Parking Area. From here you can easily follow the Rapidan River up the mountain. Fishing reports inform that the lowest concentration of brookies are at the lower boundaries of the park so take some time to enjoy the trail and hike up stream. At the lower boundaries you might hook a Brown Trout
