Conway River - Fishing Opportunities

The Conway River and it's tributaries within the Shenandoah National Park and Rapidan Wildlife Management Area are managed as a special regulation trout fishery. Only single point hook artificial lures may be used. No bait may be in possession while fishing these waters. A minimum size limit of 9 inches and a daily limit of 6 fish are in effect while fishing the Conway and its tributaries.

Anglers can expect to find most brook trout in the 7" to 9" range, with the occasional fish up to 10". Brown trout generally range 8" to 1", with a few trophy fish up to 18" caught in the lower reaches of the river.
