THE GREENBRIER RIVER
The Greenbrier River is the longest free flowing river in the Eastern US.
Draining the western slope of the Great Eastern Divide into Pocahontas, Greenbrier and Summers Counties of West Virginia, The Greenbrier River is the largest tributary of the mighty New River. One of the longest free-flowing, non-impeded rivers in the East, the Greenbrier is a busy, user friendly Smallmouth bass gem.
With water levels driven totally by rainfall and cave drainage, this river is usually warmed and ready to fish by mid April and flows remain dependable until mid July/thru September, under normal circumstances. Late Summer storms and a Fall hurricane or two, extends the season in our favor. The rising and falling of the water levels also serves to stir up bait fish and other food deposits, making things interesting enough to keep anglers anxious and actively pursuing Greenbrier bass well into Fall.
Characteristics of the Greenbrier River:
- Reasonably easy access
- Remote floatable sections
- Varied wildlife sightings
- Ease of floatability
- Good for all ages
- Good fish production in the 10″-16″ range
- Good for all forms of water recreation
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.
THE NEW RIVER AND BLUESTONE LAKE
Nearby are Sandstone Falls, Bluestone Lake, Bluestone State Park and Pipestem Resort, the surrounding area offers unlimited soft recreational activities including white water rafting, golfing, fishing, camping, hiking, bird watching and rock climbing. Snow skiing at the Winterplace Resort is less than an hour away. In 15 minutes you can catch the Amtrak train in Hinton and ride to the Greenbrier Resort, Chicago or New York City. The Beckley Airport is just 30 minutes away. The new 10,000 acre Boy Scout high adventure camp is an hour’s drive and the 14,000 acre Wildlife Management Area is just across the river at Bull Falls.
The New River is the second oldest river in the world, preceded only by the Nile; it is the oldest river in North America. The New River is unique because it begins in Blowing Rock, N.C. and flows north through Virginia into West Virginia. The Nile and Amazon are the only other major rivers that also flow north. Year after year, it produces more citation fish than any other warm water river in WV. Small-mouth bass, large-mouth bass, crappie, catfish, sunfish, hybrid striped bass, and muskie are all common species of fish found in the New River and Bluestone Lake.
Bluestone Lake is over 2000 acres at summer pool and is the state’s third largest body of water. Great hunting and fishing opportunities abound at the 17,632 acre Bluestone Wildlife Area adjacent to the park and nearby Camp Creek State Forest.
