Float Fishing Full Day - Adventures on the Gorge

Float Fishing Full Day

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
