The Greenbrier River is 173 miles long is the last free flowing river east of the Mississippi. It is an excellent river to float or canoe and is well known for its large and small mouth bass fishing. It is the gateway to water recreation and fun as it is at most times lazy and easy to navigate.

The Greenbrier River is formed by the confluence of the East Fork Greenbrier River and the West Fork Greenbrier River in the town of Durbin, West Virginia. From Durbin the Greenbrier River flows southwesterly through Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Monroe, and Summers Counties. It flows through several communities including Cass, Marlinton, Hillsboro, Ronceverte, Fort Spring, Alderson, and Hinton. The Greenbrier River joins the New River in the town of Hinton, West Virginia

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.
