Glade Creek might be one of Roanoke Counties most beautiful streams, where it is located there is very little trash; however bank erosion is a big issue. Unfortunately this creek gets fished out very, very quickly; because it is one of the few put and take streams in this area, it gets heavily fished by spin fishermen that want to catch their limit and go home. So if you want to fish Glade Creek you better be watching the VDGIF stocking website daily, and be ready to combat fish.


Realistically if Glade Creek was to become a Delayed Harvest Stream, or a Catch and Release Stream, Glade Creek would be one of the top destinations in the Roanoke Valley to fish, just because of its location and how beautiful it truly is. All of the other Delayed Harvest Sections that are located in Roanoke County are in the City of Salem, so if Glade Creek was to become a Delayed Harvest Stream it would be more accessible for those living in the eastern sections of Roanoke County.


Additional Notes: There are ample parking spots at Glade Creek, because all of the access points are located at multiple sports fields. Just remember that Glade Creek needs to stay clean, always take out what you bring in.
