Beginner to intermediate. No experience necessary.
Boys & Girls Ages 9-14
Our day camp for 9-14 year olds is designed to teach the entire process of fishing from rigging rods, tying knots, and baiting hooks. They will have the opportunity to fish from land, wade in the river and fish from watercraft. Campers will learn about the different waterways in Virginia as well as our local river, The James River. Through out the week, campers will attend different locations, both public and private as they search for the fish of a lifetime! We hope to spark a lifelong interest in our new anglers and help returning anglers build on their skills, all while introducing campers to the great wealth of fishing opportunities the area has to offer.
We have access to some great private farm ponds, where campers will enjoy the water(and fish) all to themselves! In past years, we have had success catching fish along The Appomattox River, The James River, and The Rivanna River. Some days we may travel out to the Chesapeake Bay to test our luck in the saltwater for drum, sea trout, & flounder. 2
