"The opportunities to catch fish are unreal", exclaims Class VI’s top fishing guide Brian "Squirrel" Hagar. An average New River float fishing day usually yields around 100 bites. A 20-year guiding veteran (and Class VI’s most-requested guide), Hagar can barely contain his enthusiasm when it comes to describing the fishing opportunities in southern West Virginia. Between the New and the Gauley Rivers you have a great diversity of fish, and where else can you have such a productive fishing experience and run world-class whitewater at the same time.

The New River offers a variety of fish but the cognoscente know that it is all about small-mouth bass. Lots of ‘em! The reasons the New is a superlative fishery are many: flowing, oxygenated water; water quality that is perfect for fishing; a tremendous variety of conditions (fast and slow moving water, as well as shallow and deep pools and eddies); the insect and bait fish populations are varied and abundant; and there is plenty of woody debris that the fish like.

If you are interested in catching walleye or muskie, you’ll want to head to the Gauley River. When many fishermen think of walleye, they think of the Great Lakes. But Hagar points out that our state record walleye, caught just below the confluence of the New and Gauley Rivers, is bigger than anything hooked there. Your best bet for catching the Gauley when the water level is ideal for fishing is toward the end of Gauley Season (Mid Sept-mid Oct.) during the middle of the week. Hagar claims that the Lower Gauley fishing trip is his favorite: "It’s beautiful, the fishing is demanding, and there is nobody out there!"

In order to maximize your fishing experience, Class VI trips start early and go late. Our fishing guide staff includes avid, experienced fisherman who have a wealth of knowledge to share. As you float down the river, you will be constantly challenged by the changing conditions and the continuous bites. Catch and release is our policy but we will be happy to snap a photo of your whopper.
