More About This Book

Overview

To catch fish, you need to know where to fish.

The Rapidan River is an angler's dream that can be fished year round since the watershed includes tough, cranky smallmouth bass as well as aggressive mountain brook trout. Following the precedent set in his other CatchGuide books, Steve starts the coverage at the mouth of the Rapidan where it slams into the Rappahannock at the smallmouth bass fishing heaven known simply as "the Confluence" and ends above the old presidential retreat at Camp Hoover high in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

There are 18 different access points between those two locations that open up over 34 miles of water. Even though the book runs over 50,500 words, that is not enough to describe the fabulous fishing on this premier river.

248 pictures, coupled with 21 maps, tell the rest of the story. Use them to put your experienced angler's eye on the water and make your own judgment before you drive to any particular location. In the Internet age, pictures and words are not enough. The book includes 162 GPS coordinates to obtain customized directions via the Internet or put the coordinates directly into a GPS receiver to guide your day on the water.

Beyond wade fishing, Steve discusses each access point in terms of its compatibility to launch a canoe or a kayak. Once in the water, floating anglers will be well served to use this guide to move quickly to the good spots and not waste time floating over unproductive water. In particular, they will find the detailed coverage that covers every foot of the river from Elys Ford all the way to the Confluence exceptionally focused and useful.
