Bath County is known for some of the best fishing east of the Mississippi. With crystal clear rivers, lakes, ponds, and streams, this area is home to brown trout, speckled trout, large and smallmouth bass, channel catfish, redear sunfish, crappie, and alewife. A year-round angler’s paradise!! As such, we've created an exclusive weekend for our inn guests to experience the very best guided fly-fishing experience. Participants will join Wesley Hodges and his team of skilled guides as they navigates down the lower Jackson River on this elite fly-fishing adventure. This is perfect for both new and experienced anglers. Guests will be paired 2 per boat/guide and will be matched to the best experience that meets their skill level. Included in this fishing excursion is all the equipment needed and lunch.
Below is the weekend agenda. Please note, once you book your room you are automatically included in all that is offered. As a guest on the package, you there are also invited to book 3 exclusive fishing experiences that you can purchase as an add-on. Once you book, you will be given contact information to book these private self-guided fishing experiences. Just another reason to be So Fly!
