“BEST place in the US to Trout Fish!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

I've been to the Jackson on a number of occasions to trout fish. You MUST know the RULES of that River or you could get in DEEP trouble. I'm specifically speaking of the "Old Kings Grant", which to me is a crock; however, people that live there try to protect, "THEIR RIVER", area and do not want you to trespass on “THEIR” property. So, experience the Jackson; however, just BEWARE, of property owners that are NOT very friendly at all. Some will even threaten you with their SHOTGUN to get you off of their property. I've gone with experienced individuals and I have never had any problems; however, I've heard stories...

“Beautiful -”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

We did not do any tours associated with the Homestead though. It's a pretty river, found a beautiful water fall along 220

“Gorgeous and pristine”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

This is the best kept secret in the United States! What a treat to float/kayak/canoe down this gorgeous stretch of river. It is SO peacful--a slice of heaven. Not for serious river runners needing class 4-6 rapids, but for the kayaker who just wants fun and relaxation, this place can't be beat! The river has 5 put-in spots and 5 take-out spots. Can't begin to tell you how beautiful. The scenery rivals many rivers out west.

“Excellent Trout Stream”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Excellent trout stream in western Virginia. It has many entry points and contains a release area that harbors many large trout over 15 inches.

“Best Trout Fly Fishing ever!”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

The water that runs down from the dam makes this river very COLD all year around. If you enjoy trout fly fishing, you should be on the Jackson.
