Fishing, Kayaking, Rafting, and Boating

The Potomac River- in Brunswick’s back yard just steps from the downtown.  Whether boating, canoeing, tubing or fishing, we have it!  Fishing licenses are sold in town at the Brunswick Hardware Store.  A wide variety of fish are native to the Potomac.  The river is full of small and large mouth bass, catfish, sun perch, wall eye and carp.  Bait and tackle can be purchased at Brunswick Hardware on Potomac Street. There are two boat ramps to access boats with trailers and ample parking at both as well as restroom facilities. Fishing from the bank and wading are allowed as well as from boats with proper licensing. Gas and electric motors are allowed. The river is rocky and at various times the water level is low. Check water level reports to make sure your boating rig can safely navigate the water.

Kayaks, canoes and tubes are available for rent locally. Rentals and shuttles are available from River and Trail Outfitters at the Brunswick Family Campground located ½ mile east on the towpath. The campground can be reached by motor vehicle or bike. Special tour trips including white water rafting, zip lines, kayak and tubing trips and more can be booked through River & Trail Outfitters at www.Rivertrail.com. Kayak to Brunswick’s Smoketown Brewing Station and enjoy hand crafted beer after your trip by booking a guided trip through River and Trail Outfitters.
