June Chapter Trip to Rapidan River

The Rapidan River is one of the premier native brook trout streams in the state, it flows off the East side of Shenandoah National Park and through the Rapidan Wildlife Management Area in Madison County, VA.  Several members spent a weekend in early June fishing the Rapidan River while staying at the Rapidan Camps (http://www.rapidancamps.org/).  Conditions were perfect and lots of fish were caught.  We also took in some local history with a tour of Camp Hoover while we were there.  With the plentiful rains this spring, the conditions should remain favorable well into summer, so head on up to fish it!  Find Bruce or Jason at a chapter meeting if you would like some more info on the trip.  On a bit of a sour note, the locality (Madison County) is working on an ill concieved plan to open up road access from the Wildlife Management Area to Skyline Drive, so stay tuned on that issue.
