Activities & Events
Fishing opportunities abound at The Greenbrier. Howard’s Creek flows right through the heart of the resort and is a trophy fly fishing trout stream. There are several lakes on the property that hold bass, carp and catfish, along with various panfish.
Fishing is not just limited to the resort, though.  There are numerous local streams in the area. The Greenbrier is just 15 minutes from Lake Tuckahoe, which is a trophy catch-and-release bass area. Just across the border in Virginia are the Jackson and James Rivers, and here in West Virginia, the Greenbrier River is just a couple of miles downstream from the resort. Of course it’s impossible to mention fishing in this area without the New River. It is one of the oldest rivers in the world, which might explain why the walleye in the New River are considered the oldest genetic strain. The New River is also one of the best small mouth bass fisheries in the U.S.
Whatever your preferred species to fish — whether it is trout or the fish of 10,000 casts, the muskellunge, you’ll find it here. If you are not sure what fish you’re hoping to find, one of our guides can help you. Both wading trips and float fishing trips are offered, ranging from a 1 hour fly fishing casting clinic to a full 8 hour day. Whatever your discipline, be it fly fishing or spin casting, The Greenbrier has a trip and species of fish to meet your needs.
