CRAIG CREEK AT PARR, VA

The put in is at the campground on State route 615 at the intersection of route 621. There is a
$3.00 parking fee per car that needs to be paid at the store.The takeout is under the Route 220
bridge at Eagle Rock just before the confluence with the James River. This is a state public
This is a easy section of river, not much in the line of big rapids, but you must always keep an
eye open for trees and strainers in these smaller streams.This is a good fishing stream with lots
of smallmouth and redeyes. The reaches upsteam have a good pike population as well.On a recent
outing we saw 2 beavers at different places, three or four great blue heron, several species of
ducks, and a very suprised hawk that landed just over our heads. There is a nice rock formation on
river right about a mile downstream. The wildflowers are abount and change with the season. There
are alot of houses and cabins on this section, but there are not usually many people visable and
there are lots of streaches of solitude.
If more exciting rapids are for you, and you like creeks, check out the Roaring Run reach on AW.
Personally I would just as soon watch with my throwbag in hand, or just take the easy hike up to
the falls. The hiking area is just up route 621 and worth the effort if you like creeks, slides and
waterfalls. This area also has a catch and release trout fishing with barbless hooks only, for the
flyfishermen out there.
