Come fish or paddle with us on the beautiful Smith River in Henry County, Virginia. Enjoy a peaceful paddle, a gentle float or a fishing trip, or perhaps attempt the exciting but not too difficult Class II rapids created during times of power generation from one of the two hydro dams on the Smith.

This river has something for everyone from fishing, paddling, tubing or just hiking along one of the stream-side trails. Wildlife and wildflowers are the hidden gems found right in the middle of Henry County. If it's a paddle, float, fishing or solitude you seek it's all right here.
