“I grew up spending summers at Rainbow Acres Campground and catching fish on the Mattaponi River” is what I will tell my children when we begin our camping and fishing at Rainbow Acres. I will also share with them these pictures of the many fishing memories.
Whether in a boat or on the bank, the Mattaponi river offers many types of fish; large and striped bass, catfish, perch, pike, and bluegill. “I’d spend all day out on the river fishing. It didn’t matter if I caught anything, I had fun being outside.”
“At Rainbow Acres there is a creek which meanders around the backside of the property and on the outgoing tide I hooked a catfish at the mouth of the creek. It was bigger than me.” I can’t wait for my children to come back from fishing with a wonderful memory like this to share.
