RiverGirl Fishing Co.
When patrons exit RiverGirl Fishing Co.'s historic train depot for their aquatic kayak and tubing lessons, they're placed in the charge of the outfit's founder, Kelly McCoy. During tours of the New River, which runs north through Todd, she educates guests about the area's natural landscape.
During the winter she heads to Florida, where she leads groups out onto the calm, peaceful waters of the Choctawatchee River from access points such as the Port Washington boat ramp near Eden Garden State Park, the scenic 30-acre gulf coast, or the black creek, and then guides the flotilla into the region's untamed natural beauty. As a fisheries biologist, Kelly's passion helps visitors and locals enjoy the surrounding landscape with conservation-conscious activities.

“The people were great, the tubes were very comfy. We picked a not so perfect time to go. The river was low, causing us to get stuck on rocks many times-had to keep getting out and dragging the tubes. Also a late afternoon storm came up and we got drenched. You wouldn't think that was such a bad thing, but it turned cold and there were only so many places we could get out and get "rescued" by the van. Noe of this was River Girl's fault, I just wish we had picked a better time to go, but it was difficult getting schedules coordinated. I'm not sure when the river is higher, but I would guess late spring/early summer. It would've been nice to have been told that the river was low.”
“The trips fill up quickly, so book early.”
“Loved the trip. 4th year in a row. I agree, rent a pole to help get yourself off the rocks.”
