Did You Know?
Albemarle County is home to a broad range of types and sizes of waterways โ€“ from steep, narrow, and cool headwater streams in the west against the Blue Ridge Mountains, to wide and slow-moving Piedmont streams in the central and eastern parts of the county. Brook trout can be found in those cooler fast-flowing mountain streams, while rare freshwater mussels have been found in the shallows of some of the countyโ€™s cobble-covered and winding streams.
