Escatawba Farms

Escatawba is the Native American word for “clear, running water.” That’s exactly what you’ll find here. And with it, some of the most spectacular fly-fishing in the world.

Located in Alleghany County, Virginia, Escatawba Farms is home of Dunlap Creek, a freestone stream that runs in between wooded moutainsides and fenced pastures.

For novice anglers and stillwater enthusiasts, Escatawba Farms boasts a one and a half-acre, spring-fed lake. Tucked back in the woods, back from the stream, holding dozens of big, cruising rainbows and brook trout, many of them citation size. To ensure a peaceful day we limit the number of rods on the stream for ideal angling.

Admission Fee: $100/per person
