Enjoy the quiet and solitude of trout fishing in Greene County's mountain streams.  

Native brook trout and the occasional brown trout can be found along the Conway and Rapidan Rivers.  The Conway River and its major tributary, Devil's Ditch, are special regulation trout fisheries and bait is not permitted.  The Rapidan River is the first fish-for-fun fishery created in Virginia.  

The South River and Swift Run are stocked 5 times between October and May with rainbow trout though native brook trout can be found in the upper elevations.

Please respect private property. If designated parking areas are not available, park and enter the streams via VDOT right of ways (parking near bridges is ideal).  More information can be found by clicking on the river names above.
