The Greenbrier River is one of the most charming rivers in West Virginia. At more than 150 miles long, it has great rural scenery, rich history, and excellent fishing. The Greenbrier was a Native American warpath and had a big role in the development of region’s early timber industry. Today, it offers some of the best recreation opportunities in the state, including very productive fishing spots. The smallmouth fishing in the Greenbrier is world-class. On a typical fishing day, you’ll see expert fly fishers tossing hand-tied flies from guided rafts, novices wading with push-button casting rods, and everyone in between. If you like to wade, you’ll find plenty of access points in and along the Greenbrier River . If you prefer to float, the river has great paddling on one of the longest undammed rivers in the east.

However you fish in the Greenbrier, you’ll find beautiful scenery, plenty of wildlife, and hard-fighting smallmouth around each bend. Novice paddlers should take special care near Talcott, near Bacon Falls and the Lindsey Slide. Both of these rapids are for expert paddlers only.

A style that stands the test of time, Craftsman homes are known for integrity, character, simplicity, flow, comfort, and harmony with the outdoors. One might say, “Heaven seems a little closer in a house beside the water.”
