Fly fishing Virginia's finest smallmouth rivers usually starts in April and will last into the fall. Our season typically peaks between July and September. The Shenandoah allows anglers shots at record breaking numbers of fish. 100 plus fish days are common when the conditions are right. We also target HUGE largemouth, some over 7 pounds, as well as carp and musky. The James River is a true trophy smallmouth fishery. Although 100 fish days are common on the James, anglers have the opportunity to hook into a 5 pound smallouth on this world-class river. Float Trips on the James River or Shenandoah River usually last around 8 hours and include lunch and drinks. We are experienced boatmen and have an intimate knowledge of these rivers. All of our guides fished for years before taking clients down the river. You will find our boats extremely comfortable and spacious. We accommodate both fly and spin/conventional tackle anglers on our smallmouth trips. All of our boats are equipped with the finest fly rods, spin rods, and tackle available.
Guide fees include: flies, leaders, tippet, and tackle. All equipment is provided, free of charge.
The boats accomodate 2 anglers and guide. Multiple boats may be booked upon request.
All trips full day
$325 for 1 angler
