Float Fishing Full-Day Trip

West Virginia offers unparalleled fishing, with our excellent habitat, deep pools, and swift currents. The boulder-rich waterways deep in the New River Gorge offer plenty of shade that attracts the fish. It’s not uncommon for our guests to reel in up to 60 fish on a single day on the New River.

This full-day float fishing trip starts very early in the morning, giving you approximately 8 hours of prime West Virginia Smallmouth Bass fishing. We will be covering 7-12 miles of the best fishing on the New River. Both spin fishing and fly fishing options are available.  Please let us know your preference when you book.

If you don’t have a full day to spend fishing, try our Float Fishing Half-Day Trip.

Minimum Age: 8 
Our fishing guides know this river better than anybody. They’ll help you with bait or fly selection and where to cast, plus instruction, if necessary.
Our 16-foot oar-rigged boats hold 2 guests and a guide.

This trip is approximately 8 hours on the water, plus a 45 minute bus ride each way.

We provide everything you need to have a great day of fishing.  This includes tackle, rods, reels and plastic bait, plus flies and fly rods if specified. We also bring lunch, snacks and drinks.

You are responsible for obtaining and bringing your WV fishing license, and we ask that you please show that to your guide when you meet up. Bring sunscreen and weather-appropriate clothing, including rain gear, warm layers, sunglasses and a hat. If your personal gear is preferred, bring your rod, hard bait, crank baits, plugs or minnows.
All fishing trips are catch and release with artificial baits only.

Our guides will discuss specific safety requirements on site.  Fishing trips include some rapids which will be navigated by our experienced guides.  All our fishing guides are trained in whitewater navigation in addition to fishing.
