Richmond Kayak Touring and Fishing Camp
Paddle Fish is the kayak division of Virginia Outside
Our fleet of Jackson sit-on-top kayaks offer the perfect vehicle for adventure and excitement on Virginia's waters. They are easy to paddle, extrememly safe, and allow us to get close to the fish and wildlife.
This camp is perfect for campers who have been to our fishing camps before and are looking to do something a little different, or for those who have never been with us before, but who love being outside and in charge of their own destiny.
Our staff have completed the ACA level I skills assessment and will instruct campers on safety, paddling, and general maneuvering of a sit-on-top kayak. As campers learn throughout the week at various locations as we incorporate fishing, sightseeing and touring while paddling on all types of water. We will float stretches of the James, local ponds, as well as head east to some tidal marshes.
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 by Virginia Outside.
