The Story

Nestled on thousands of acres in the Allegheny Mountains of Virginia, The Omni Homestead Resort has been welcoming visitors since the 18th century. With 483 luxurious rooms and renowned for its natural hot mineral springs and rich historical ambience, The Omni Homestead Resort is the perfect place to enjoy or improve your fly fishing skills. The resort has over four miles of blue-ribbon catch-and-release waters. The Cascades, our limestone creek with both wild and stocked rainbows, courses down a 350-foot vertical drop gorge accentuated by 13 breathtaking waterfalls. The stream is suited for both the novice and the experienced angler. With access to numerous local waters containing both wild and stocked rainbows, browns and brookies, we can plan your guided fly-fishing adventure. The resort features a European style spa, equestrian center, shooting sports, canoeing/kayaking, zip tour, and much more.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fishing and Great Guide Matt Thomas did an excellent job putting me on fish, taught me a great deal, and was fun to hang out with. The Orvis rods and reels were very nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly fishing trip with Matt Thomas My husband and I have been fortunate to enjoy some great fly fishing trips around the country, but this trip with Matt quickly became our favorite. Thanks to the close proximity of the the stream to the resort, we were geared up and fishing within 20 minutes, and I had a rainbow on my first cast. Matt was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and as soon as the fishing slowed down, moved us to a new spot. We had the stream to ourselves the entire time and the scenery was stunning. Best of all, we lost track of the number of fish we caught, which is a great indicator of a successful trip. We can't wait to fish with him again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trip Had a great trip mid July with Matt T on the Cascades stream. He knew what flies were working and what spots to hit. Caught 12 or so beautiful Rainbows and Browns. Awesome Guide and all around great guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous fly fishing experience! Prior to visiting the Homestead I had just spent a week in Montana fly fishing blue ribbon trout streams and rivers. The Cascades Stream was right there with the best of them. My Orvis endorsed guide was outstanding. His knowledge, expertise and skill enabled me to catch more fish than I would have otherwise. In addition he taught me a number of fly fishing skills that were not in my repertoire. Matt was the key to a marvelous fly fishing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly Fishing with Matt Thomas @ Homestead I’ve fished many times in the Moubtauns of western Va and always try to hook up with Matt...always cordial and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to fly fishing ...enjoyed the Fliat Trips down the Jackson River (caught 3 20” Browns w/Matt on 1 Trip...and remember well the time Matt/I were fishing in dead of Winter on Tomahawk when Trmperature registered 0 degrees withe the wind chill (we both decided by 4:00 pm to then call it a day after last fish caught! Upper Cascades fishing for Brookies has been fun as well with Matt.
