The Brown's Bait and Tackle Shop can be used as a put in and take out to paddle around Berry Shoals Pond. The pond is flatwater.
The Berry Shoals Pond is a flatwater reservoir located along the South Tyger River. Because of mild currents, boaters can paddle upstream nearly 2 miles or stay nearby and explore the pond. Brown's Bait and Tackle shop located on Berry Shoals Road offers parking, boat ramp/launch site, and fishing from the banks. There is a $3 boat launch/parking fee applicable to both fishers and paddlers.
Brown's Bait and Tackle is on the right side of the pond upstream of the Berry Shoals Road bridge. Paddlers should check in the shop before using the river access. Berry Shoals Pond offers a leisurely half day paddle; paddlers can paddle upstream for two miles before returning to the pond. Consult the Tyger River Blueway map for more information.
