Angling opportunities are abundant at The Greenbrier. Let our experienced fishing guides take you on a trip through Howard’s Creek — a ribbon of water that flows through the heart of the resort — where you can enjoy fly fishing or catch-and-release fishing for trophy trout and smallmouth bass. If fly fishing is not your angle, there are several lakes on the grounds that hold bass, carp, catfish, and various panfish. But fishing is not limited only to the resort.

Off-Resort Fishing

Our guides will accompany you to several local streams for a unique fishing experience, like opportunities for more trout and bass fishing, locations for more experienced anglers, and a chance to land a native trout in one of our backcountry streams. For a more adventurous take on fishing, our guides can take you straight to the river for premium scenic float trips and wading trips designed for outdoor enthusiasts. You’ll enjoy access to remote river sections for a private experience that can’t be found anywhere else.

An Angler’s Paradise

Many of our local rivers and waterways have sections that require special equipment and knowledge in order to navigate the various shoals and rapids. Our experienced guides will create a custom experience that suits your style — from a 1-hour fly fishing casting clinic to a full 6-hour day — and will provide all conventional gear. All trips depart from Kate’s Mountain Adventures at The Greenbrier’s North Entrance.
