As pressure on our public trout waters increase, there has been a trend to fee fishing in privately stocked trout waters. It costs a fee to fish these streams, but anglers can usually be assured that there are plenty of trout to cast to and not so many fishermen on the stream to ruin the experience. Susie Q Farm has such a stretch of water and they are now booking through the month of November.
In years past, this one-mile stretch on Smith Creek closed on October 1, but not this year. There is plenty of water, plenty of fish and the stream remains open. The cost per rod is $85 per day, and the hours are from sunup till sundown.
Smith Creek is a prime spring creek north of Harrisonburg holding lots of big brown trout. The farm has been recently mowed, manicured, and stocked and is ready for anglers. Call 540-434-2434 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a day on the water.
