Not exceedingly familiar with the area but I think most of the trout fishing is smaller wateers in the National Park. The exchange is some pretty phenominal smallmouth fishing on the Shenandoah and it's branches.
Check with Harry Murray www.murraysflyshop.com for more info.

Better known trout streams of the general area include the Rapidan.

I'll second JohnW's advice to check with Harry Murray.
