Without a doubt one of the greatest things about what we do is exploring and finding new locations to offer our programs.
Our location in Hillsville, VA is about as perfect a spot as it gets for combining fly fishing for trout and conventional fishing for smallmouth bass on the New River.
Located in a secluded valley, the cabin offers a wild privacy right on the banks of a private stretch of river stocked with trout.
Just a short drive down the road the New River, offers the best smallmouth fishing in the southeast.
Campers will spend the week learning paddling and fishing skills and safety from certified ACA instructors and expert anglers fishing mostly on the New River in kayaks combined with fly fishing on the river right in camp for big rainbow trout.
Hillsville is located about 4 hours from Richmond, VA and is less than two hours from Charlotte and just under 3 hours from Raleigh.
We stay in rustic cabin. We don't have TV or internet but we do have electricity, running water, a kitchen, and bathrooms for showers. It's about perfect.
Sunday: Arrive at camp, unpack, get comfortable and maybe even get in a little fishing.
Monday: The day begins with a general orientation to our equipment and surroundings. We begin the week on Lake Sebago right out our front door. The morning includes kayak paddling and safety instruction before moving on to fishing skills. The rest of the day is spent on the lakes within a short drive of camp.
Tuesday: We load up the trailer and head to the Delaware River for a day of floating and fishing for smallmouth bass.
Wednesday: There are so many great options in the area it is really hard to imagine. We leave Wednesday open to try something new. We might head to the coast for a chance at striped bass or make our way to the mountains to try for trout.
Thursday: Water and fishing conditions permitting we head back to the Delaware River. We can't ever really get enough of it.
Friday: With so many species out there we sometimes overlook the panfish. Not on Friday when we team up to see who can bring us the largest stringer back for dinner.
Saturday: pack up and head home wherever that may be.
*The Itinerary is subject to change based on conditions and weather, but there are plenty of fishing opportunities around. We will be out there every day.
