CLIFTON FORGE, Va. (WFXR) — Looking to make outdoors plans for the weekend? Chief Meteorologist John Carroll has your WFXR News Outdoors Bound Activities Forecast.

This is the time of year to see spring in full bloom along area rivers. The Outdoors Bound crew was on the Jackson River this week taking a guided float trip with Rob England and Appalachian Bronzeback Adventures for an upcoming story. The scenery was spectacular and some smallmouth bass and brook trout cooperated with our angling efforts.
