James River fishing guide since 1998. Captain Neil Renouf has chartered the James River for catfish up to 102lbs, and other species that swim in the James River.

Join our expert fishing guide Neil Renouf on a James River fishing trip for a fantastic day chasing big blue catfish. We cater for corporate business trips, bachelor parties, trophy hunts and fun family days out, for experienced fishermen to complete beginners.

Fish the James River all year round and encounter huge blue catfish in excess of 100lbs.

Other species caught on the James River include stripers, slab crappie and during the spring months migratory species such as American and hickory shad.



Our clients are primarily interested in fishing for trophy catfish and other other seasonal species of fish found on the James River. Other features of the fishing trip can include lessons in fishing techniques, historic James River facts, and wildlife education.
