Vacationers and residents love the excitement of rafting on this river as much as a lazy float. Fly fishers enjoy fishing on the only National River that runs 150 miles through protected public land that spreads out over 95,000 acres. Because the river resides in this protected environment, it is crystal clear. There are over 50 species of fish to catch, including the much desiderated trophy fish, the small mouth bass. The rushing river creates an oxygen rich environment perfect for supporting fish.
There are many local outfitters that will supply fishers with the perfect equipment to make the trip a roaring success, as well as river guides to help fishers find the perfect spot for a great day on the river. Fishers can also land perch and catfish along the BNR.
