You don’t have to love fishing to enjoy a fly fishing weekend adventure, especially when it’s located less than 30 minutes from both the Homestead Resort and the Greenbrier Resort in Virginia.
The Escatawba Farms is a catch-and-release fly fishing go-to spot in the lovely town of Covington, Va. Escatawba Farms offers a secluded experience on Dunlap Creek, a creek that runs through two miles of mountains and pastures and also has a spring-fed lake on the property for a more idle fishing experience.
Reservations are required for each angler and the rod fee per day is $120. Both guide service and casting lessons are available with a reservation. The lessons are given by certified fly casting instructors, some with more than 20 years of experience.
For more info on reservations, call 540-962-6487. Ecsatawba Farms is located about three hours and half hours from downtown D.C.
While there isn’t lodging specifically for anglers at Escatawba Farms, there are shelters around the property for breaks and relaxation. If you want to stay the weekend, we recommend booking a room at the nearest resorts.
