Deep Bottom Park

Located at an oxbow of the James River, Deep Bottom Park is a popular place for fish-seeking folks to launch motorboats, canoes and kayaks. Fishing off the dock is also permitted. Here, the river is wide and tidal, and there is an abundance of aquatic and avian wildlife in the park's vicinity. For anglers, Deep Bottom is a good launch point for species from largemouth bass to spawning shad and stripers. In addition, the tidal James supports a nationally-recognized trophy blue catfish fishery. Big blue cats 30+ lbs. (the record is 109 lbs.) are not uncommon and bring in fishermen from all over the country.
