is a full service canoe livery that rents canoes, kayaks, and inner tubes on the James & Maury Rivers in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia. TRO offers its customers fun and safe white water paddling experiences with true mountain views. We are the oldest and most experienced outfitter operating on the Upper James River and have been safely running river trips since 1978. We run trips on nearly 100 miles of river in the Upper James River Basin area so have numerous trip options to suit every level of paddler.

eg cliffsRIVER CONDITIONS ON THE UPPER JAMES RIVER

Excellent water levels still exist on the Upper James River.  The benefit to a very wet year is good water levels for late summer and fall are projected.  The river levels have settled down nicely since the major rain events early this Summer. The James is running clear with at least 5 foot visibility in most places making it great for checking out the river bottoms for grass, rocks, and fish. So hit the river while these great conditions and water levels last.
