My plan had been to fish from the second bridge to the third bridge. I only got about ¾ of the way there. I parked just past the third bridge, walked down to the second bridge and worked my way upstream. There was a lot of water to explore, the fishing was very good for February, so I took my time enjoying the afternoon.
There is a good place to park on the left after you cross the bridge.
Here are some images from the section I fished.
This is where I stopped. There is a trail to the left and a short walk to the road. You can see the rip rap in the background, the road is at the top of that rip rap. The third bridge is a short (10 min or less) walk.
VDGIF stocks this water from the first bridge to the fourth bridge. You will need a valid trout license from October 1 to June 15 in addition to the other fishing license if you are fishing in these designated stocked trout waters. License information: https://gooutdoorsvirginia.com
