Fished the Elk below the dam on Friday. A bit crowded, but the fishing was good. Looks like they stocked recently. Nice browns. Fish were midging, but I fished underneath with soft hackles and a black leech pattern. I'm going to be spending a lot of time in Winchester in the coming months. I'll keep you posted on the Elk if anyone is interested.

Fish there every Friday with my Dad....We would love to compare notes with you. We come up from Huntsville. Caught some on Zebra Midge last week. We frequent Tim's Lies and Flies in Lynchburg...how 'bout you?

BamaBum, I will run into you on Fridays. I'll let you know if I'm fishing. Thanks

Try sometime to head down river to Ferris Creek bridge if you ever have time... its less crowded.

kriscad, I like Farris Bridge, but it can't handle many anglers below the bridge. Have you tried to fish upstream of the bridge? I used to fish VanZant Bend, but haven't been there in a while. Found any other access that's not giving away a family secret.
