Smith River Outfitters

Fishing & Boating

The Smith river has Virginia’s highest catch rate of wild Brown trout, per data from the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.  The Brown trout of the Smith River are not always the biggest Browns in Virginia rivers but visitors will enjoy matching wits with some of the “wilyest” trout in the state. Spend the day with an experienced, professional angler as they guide you down a premier trout stream offering both stocked Rainbows, Brook Trout, and wild Browns. Enjoy a relaxing trip down the river in comfort and style while you match wits with these beautiful creatures. 

Smith River Outfitters offers fly-fishing trips primarily, but can accommodate spin fishing. They practice catch and release only.  Float for a full or half day and enjoy an experience with the comfort of cushioned seats, casting platforms, and thigh bars on a custom designed fishing raft.

Full day float trip: $495 | 8 hrs.
Half day float trip: $425 | 4- 5 hrs.
