Life Outside Summer 2018 - 17

PERHAPS THE MAIN REASON more outdoors
lovers don't know much about the Roanoke
River is because it lies between two rivers
nationally known for their fishing and
floating-the James and New.
Or maybe it's because people perceive the
Roanoke, as it flows through Salem and
Roanoke, as just a small, urban waterway.
But consider the following: The Roanoke
hosts two delayed-harvest trout sections-
no other urban area in the state can claim
even one. Another section looks for all the
world like a rural excursion even though
it courses through the city. A third float is
about as citified as can be with scenic views
of the Roanoke Star and downtown. And yet
another trip flaunts some of the most exciting
whitewater in Virginia.

SMITH PARK TO TINKER CREEK
The Roanoke Star is part of the scenery
on the Smith Park junket.
Canada geese and mallards, right, are
part of the wildlife along the river.
