Float Fishing Half-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.

Our half-day float fishing trip gives you approximately four hours in the water, either in the early morning or late afternoon. Snacks, drinks, tackle, and transportation to and from the river are provided.

If you are looking to spend more time in the water, you can try our Float Fishing Full-Day trip, or the 2-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.

Four to five hours on the water plus a 45 minute bus ride each way. If you want to pair it up with another activity, make sure you schedule the second activity after 2 pm.

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 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.
