Annapolis River

A mighty river flowing across The Valley and into Annapolis Basin, the Annapolis River is a popular system for those looking to fish for American Shad and Striped Bass. The span of this river offers plenty of opportunity for exploring different locations to fish, all while allowing you to take in the beauty of this area's rolling hills, vineyards and agricultural landscape. If you'd prefer to take it all in from a boat or kayak, there is a public park and boat launch in Lawrencetown, as well as Jubilee Park in Bridgetown.
