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 float fishing trip gives you two full days of great West Virginia Smallmouth Bass fishing, riverside camping, and delicious meals. Both spin fishing and fly fishing options are available. Please let us know your preference when you book.
We have a designated gear boat and boater that sets up camp long before you arrive. When you hit the beach, your tent with sleeping cots will be set up and your dry gear will be waiting for you. Once you settle in a steak dinner with all the trimmings will be prepared to perfection.
The next morning, we prepare a large breakfast. After breakfast, you are on your way to another spectacular day of fishing.
