So, What Is Trent's Reach on the James River

I've come across this name many times, but am unable to find out what it actually was or where it actually was.  I suppose it is somewhere near Drewry's Bluff and that a reach is some sort of a river term.  Perhaps it is a turn ij the river or a long stretch of straight-flowing water.

The CSS Nansemond was by it on several occasions.

When I look it up, I always end up with just all the Civil War fighting.

What and where is it?
