I found out last week that I will be moving to Charlottesville, VA in mid June for the next 3-6 years as a Medicine resident at UVA. Is anyone familiar with the fishing opportunities in the area? I subscribe to the philosophy that if it swims and eats, it can be caught on a fly, so any and all species are in play.

Most of my fishing has been panfish/bass in ponds, Western trout streams (YNP area), and limited saltwater (Mobile Bay).

It seems that there is a pretty good fly shop in the area (Ablemarle Angler), as well as a private river nearby.

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
