The New River Gorge National River offers over 50 miles of world-class Smallmouth Bass river fishing. West Virginia's New River has long been rated as one of the top rivers for small mouth bass fishing in the country. The abundance of Smallmouth Bass in the New River is due in part to the inaccessibility of the gorge and the success of catch and release fishing. Twelve miles of the New River have been designated as catch and release small mouth bass fishing. We offer both fly fishing and spin fishing options from half day, full day or multi day trips.
These West Virginia fishing trips can be scheduled to go out in the early morning, mid day, or early afternoon allowing you between three to fourteen hours of prime West Virginia Smallmouth Bass fishing. Our custom guided fishing trips cover between four to sixteen miles of the best fishing on the New River. Our trips will expose you to a wide variety of fishing situations and every New River fishing trip is designed to fit with your vacation schedule. Spin fishing and fly fishing for small mouth bass are both options on all trips. Gourmet riverside lunch, drinks, snacks, tackle, transportation and professional fishing guide are provided for you.
"Most people think of Trout when talking about fly fishing, I personally think of a sunny afternoon in the New River Gorge landing poppers on eddy lines and waiting for a big Smallie to crush it! " - Bobby Bower (New River Fishing Guide)
