    Default Richmond Catfishing

    I am originally from Texas and love to catfish. i live in Roanoke but my girlfriend goes to VCU in Richmond and we have been searching for somewhere on the james that we can catfish from the banks at nighttime. we have went to the Huguenot Bridge park area 2 times with some luck catching 3 small fish in the 6-10 pound range but want to go somewhere that we are allowed to fish into the night from the banks any one have any suggestions? help would be greatly appreciated.

    I know Im late but Ive had good luck at the canoe launch at Browns Island, Ancarrow boat landing, and just west of the huguenot bridge. But I must warn you, there is alot of debris in the water currently around the huguenot bridge.
