After arriving Sunday evening, Adventure campers will spend the week fishing the best waters the area has to offer. Situated in a prime location, this camp offers the unique opportunity to split time fishing both fresh and saltwater. Campers fish a combination of private ponds for largemouth bass, scenic local rivers for panfish, bass, and catfish, shallow saltwater flats for redfish, speckled trout, and flounder, as well as a day fishing near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel targeting species such as Flounder, sharks, Spadefish, and Cobia with Captain Neil Renouf
. Campers will fish primarily conventional tackle, but will also get a half day of fly fishing instruction and an opportunity to target fish during the week with the fly rod should they choose.Kayak Fishing and Touring Camp (ages 12 - 15)Check this video!
This week provides a wonderful opportunity to learn or advance sit-on-top kayaking and kayak fishing skills. Our staff of ACA (American Canoe Association) certified counselors will instruct campers on safety, paddling, and general maneuvering of a sit-on-top kayak. As campers learn throughout the week at various locations, we will incorporate fishing, sightseeing and touring while paddling on all types of water from saltwater marshes and tidal rivers to local freshwater ponds and lakes.
A highlight of the week is the overnight camping trip on the upper Rappahannock River where campers will fish for smallmouth bass and learn to navigate class I and II rapids before camping right on the river for the evening and enjoying a good meal.
A kayak is a great way to get close to nature and we expect to see bald eagles, ospreys, herons, deer and beaver. When we are fishing our catch will include large and smallmouth bass, catfish, sunfish, crappie, spot, croaker, and maybe a redfish or two. Kayaks, paddles, life vests, and fishing gear are provided.
