Escatawba Farms is a carefully manicured, well maintained, fly fishing venue that holds an abundant
population of beautiful Brown, Brook and Rainbow Trout. Located in Alleghany County,
Virginia, the farm consisting of 485 acres, is situated on Dunlap Creek, a tributary of the Jackson
River. The stream’s source, the Old Sweet Springs are one of the three medicinal springs
mentioned by Mr. Jefferson in his 1788 book, Notes on the State of Virginia.
The Native American’s named our little river Escatawba, which means “clear running water”. It
meanders between steep, wooded mountainside and fenced pastures, providing the angler
with a variety of interesting water. Our two- and one-half-mile section of private stream is
uncrowded, unspoiled and untamed.
This is property is owned and managed by our friends Derrick and Karen Barr.

We have extensive knowledge of local mountain streams and would love to share this unique experience of catching the native Brook Trout of the East Coast with you.
The Jackson River in Bath County is one of Virginia’s most famous streams and for good reason. There are plenty of wild trout, both Rainbow and Brown, some of which grow to very large sizes in this year round tailwater fishery.
For fly fishing in Virginia, its hard to beat Big Bend Farm. This private trout water is managed to provide the highest quality experience for anglers in terms of both size and quantity of fish.
