Tim started catching fish on the first cast. We took Hank and Reba (hounds) who had a marvelous time swimming or running on along the bank. We hardly had to paddle as the current carried us down stream. We stopped a few times to stretch.
By 1:00, Tim had caught (and released) around 75 fish, mostly bream with some large and small mouth bass.
After the railroad bridge, which looked like the halfway point, Bull Run starts to deepen up as it gets more bends back and forth. We actually had to paddle more and with all the bends, we discovered was a lot further than we thought. The railroad bridge is probably only 1/3rd of the way.
We pulled out around 3:30 by Bull Run Marina. We think it was about 9 miles. We took our time and had a fun relaxing day.
Spring (May) is a good time to do this one. We did not have to get out of the kayaks at all to get through the shallows. We suspect that later on you will have to portage more.
