Fishing the Maury is a unique experience. It runs solely through Rockbridge county, starting near Goshen and ending at Glasgow as she spills into the James. The Maury is also a hidden gem for Smallmouth bass fishing, A rated by the VADWR, and one of the most beautiful kayak trips in Virginia! Several stretches hold trophy-length fish, and decent amounts of fish in the 1.5-3lb range, along with loads of average 12-14" fish. It also offers spectacular views, wildlife viewing opportunities, and great spots to stop for a break, and even a swim. We hope you'll book one of our kayak tours, and let our Smallmouth guide Jamie take you on an adventure you're sure to remember!!
Or, feel free to check out our options for kayak rentals, as well as our shuttle service that we offer for ALL paddlers, not just anglers!
We have 4 kayaks available, all included in the guided trip. Complete with paddles, PFD, whistle kit, a dry box for small personal items, and appropriate tackle for the trip as well. Feel free to bring your own equipment, but know that should you choose, you may simply hop in your car and show up. Everything will be provided!
We also have 6 single seat, and 2 tandem Crescent kayaks available for rent! Check out the Book a Trip page for more details!!
You won't have to worry about not being prepared. We will provide the kayak, paddle, all appropriate safety equipment, rods and reels, and tackle in our guided trip packages! For rentals, you'll receive the kayak, paddle, PFD, and safety whistle.
We are a 5-star rated experience on AirBnb, and have served guests from Pennsylvania, Missouri, Florida, and more, in just our first year of operation. Book with us and see what makes this the most unique kayak experience in Virginia.
At Maury River Smallmouth, small business is the name of our game. With that in mind, we wanted to let everyone know that we buy our kayaks, gear, and tackle exclusively from Journey Outdoors in Lexington, Va. Stop in and tell them I sent you!! Link to their website below!!
