Virginia’s Rappahannock, affectionately known as the Rap, has a long and colorful history. Algonquian Indians named the river Rappahannock, meaning “rapidly rising and falling waters,” no doubt referring to its daily tidal fluctuations as it empties into Chesapeake Bay. The Rappahannock offers a wide variety of species to pursue. Shad and stripers migrate annually, but anglers may prefer to go after the resident populations of smallmouth bass, bluegill, largemouth bass, perch, carp, or catfish.
