Friday Flyfishing Post–Hemlock Overlook

Posted June 8th, 2007 by

It’s just west of Clifton, Va and more of a drive than I thought it would be, but a couple of weeks ago I hit Bull Run (yes, that Bull Run) at Hemlock Overlook. It’s a nice half-mile walk down to the creek, and it’s very well populated with bluegill, smallmouth, largemouth, and monster carp.

The Path Down

I saw the biggest carp of my life at Hemlock Overlook. It was about 40 lbs and was slowly screening food off the undercut bank 10 feet away from me.
