Anglin’ for all ages.

Throughout Page Valley and its three towns, anglers can find bank and boat fishing at popular spots including the Hawksbill Creek, Lake Arrowhead, and the South Fork of the Shenandoah River.

The South Fork of the Shenandoah touts a long-standing reputation as an excellent smallmouth bass river, with densities greater than any other river in Virginia and catch rates averaging up to four fish per hour. Anglers along the South Fork can also find several sunfish species, both black and white crappie, stocked fingerling-size musky, and plenty of channel catfish.


Luray fishing platforms

Anglin' in Luray

Angle along two ADA-accessible fishing platforms along the award-winning Luray-Hawsksbill Greenway. The platforms are designed for persons such as disabled veterans, those with walking disabilities, and those who are not comfortable walking on uneven surfaces.

The Hawksbill Creek — a Class A fishing stream — is stocked with more than 3 tons of rainbow and brook trout each year. The Town of Luray each April hosts a youth trout fishing tournament in Downtown Luray along the creek.
