Shenandoah River Musky Gallery.
The Shenandoah River is an amazing fishery. It holds a good population of musky and is an outstanding smallmouth river. 100 fish days on smallies are not out of the question any day on this river. Big streamers in the spring will produce bass and musky.
Smallmouth bass is what the Shenandoah River is most well known for however, over the past few years anglers have started notice it is an amazing musky fishery as well. There are a number of rivers in Virginia that have great musky populations. The New River, James River, and the Shenandoah are three of our favorites.
Virginia musky fishing has really become popular over the past decade. Virginia’s musky population and size of fish might not be a high as the Midwest states but, our rivers have a good number musky over 50″ and it seems Virginia musky are a little more user friendly.
Shenandoah river musky can often times be sight fished for. When water color or flow is not favorable for sigh fishing, fishing structure and deeper slower moving water is the best bet for getting the attention of these amazing fish.
We offer guide trips for musky on the Shenandoah from September – April or May depending on water temperatures. Once the water temps warm up to around 75 degrees we will stop fishing for them.
