Whitetop Laurel Creek near Damascus, Virginia
Who here likes fat wild rainbows that reproduc like rabbits and HUGE brown trout that grow that big on the tiny rainbows. Well if you do I recommend you fish Whitetop Laurel Creek if you are in the area because it is known as the best creek for that kind of fishing in the whole state of Virginia. It all starts in late march when the fish can be caught on just about anything but Blue Quills, March Browns, Light Cahills, and Parachute Adams in sizes 14 to 16 are the best. Late spring/early summer means sulphers and caddis dominate. Late summer through fall mean terrestrials are the best with tiny black ants reigning king. As with most creeks in the area there are special regulations for certain parts of the creek so be sure you know what they are and where they are before you go. As a parting note the best fishing happens the farther away you get from the crowd; the same obstacles you face have made countless turn back. Good luck fishing!
