An Unparalleled Private New River Gorge Fishing Experience

The New River Gorge area may be famous for its whitewater, but it also provides amazing opportunities for prime fishing.

Exceptional habitats, deep pools, and swift currents make West Virginia’s New River a fisherman’s paradise. The boulder-rich waterways in the New River Gorge offer plenty of shade, which keeps waters cool to attract fish. It’s not uncommon to reel in dozens of fish in just one day spent on the New River!

This adventure is a guided full-day float fishing trip. You’ll get started early in the morning, giving you the chance to make the most of prime hours for smallmouth bass fishing. We’ll float down up to 12 miles of the New River.
