Just For Kids
The James River Fishing School is proud to offer educational fishing and ecology programs just for kids. Parents are always welcome to be participating members of the group, but it's not necessary. We offer a series of program that introduce kids to the river in differents way. We wade and explore, fish from rafts, and even treck downriver into the tidal James, exploring the river from a 24-foot pontoon boat called the Discovery Barge II.
Programs are geared for ages 9-14 years. Our goal is to teach proper fishing techniques while offering a general knowledge of fish and their habitats. Kids will come away with hands-on experience and in a safe learning environment and have an appreciatioin for wildlife and environmental stewardship.
