Big Browns


 The South River has two different fisheries.  We have the Special Regulations area of the Upper South River, which is upstream of Waynesboro just outside town.  Then there is the Delayed Harvest area around Constitution Park in the City.  Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries stocks small browns and rainbows in the  Upper South, and when these fish get to be big, they often move to the bigger holes of the Delayed Harvest.  Be careful when reeling in fall fish, as these large browns can scare the hell out of you!
