Fishing Off-Site, Groups of 4 or More 


You'll find plenty of trout and bass in our sparkling streams, which makes fishing the perfect activity for wiling away an afternoon. Fishing gear, available at Kate's Mountain Outfitters at the North Entrance, as well as instruction are available to help anglers get the most enjoyment.



Please call 855-453-4858 (Option 1) for reservations.


The Greenbrier grounds play host to two year round fishing sites a short walk from your room. Howard's Creek offers a mile of fly fishing for rainbow trout and is the perfect venue for learning the art, or simply spending a few relaxing hours. Swan Lake, located near the golf club, boasts wild largemouth bass, sunfish, crappie, and catfish. As its name suggests, this is a perfect destination for families.

For a change in scenery, The Greenbrier's guides also offer half-day and full-day fishing excursions off-property.  These include both private and public trout streams that can be selected based on your desires and the season.

Also offsite, guests can enjoy a refreshing float trip of fishing along the Greenbrier, James and New Rivers.  All three offer excellent smallmouth bass and the James and New Rivers are known for their musky.  Offsite river trips are available mid-April to mid-October and range from 5-12 hour durations for your convenience.  These outings are perfect for families and client events, as both are perfect for fly or spin fishing and equipment is set for two anglers and one guide.
