Services

We offer guided trips to a variety of waters here at Dead Drift Outfitters. Our ¬†guides will put you on fish, whether you desire to wade or float. We offer wade trips to local stocked and wild trout waters, trophy trout waters (contact for special pricing and locations) as well as float trips on the good ol’ James, New and Maury Rivers. We also have beautiful cabin and river house availability on some of our trophy trout streams. If you’re not sure where to start on the whole fly fishing thing, we offer basics lessons as well. Want to learn how to tie some tried and true Appalachian flies? Got ya covered. If you prefer to fish for smallmouth using conventional gear, let us know. Send us a note to schedule your next outing!¬†And check out our online store for sweet gear, materials, and apparel!
