Floating the Tye River

Nelson County offers an abundance of fishing venues, as well as outdoor recreational opportunities like canoeing and kayaking. With the Tye and Rockfish Rivers running through its scenic countryside, it’s an ideal locale to visit if you are seeking solitude and a fishing paradise. One challenging spot for anglers is Lake Nelson, where fishermen are likely to catch largemouth bass, channel catfish, black crappie, bluegill, and redear sunfish.
