Activities & Events
Fishing opportunities abound at The Greenbrier. Howard’s Creek is a spectacular ribbon of water that flows right through the heart of the resort. Let our experienced Greenbrier fishing guides take you on a trip through The Greenbrier property, where you can enjoy fly fishing for catch and release trophy trout or smallmouth bass. Anglers of all levels can take pleasure in the views that the Allegheny Mountains provide. If fly fishing is not your angle, then 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. There are numerous local streams in the area where our guides can take you, as well. They offer the opportunity for more trout and bass fishing, or for a more experienced angler to catch a native trout in one of our back country streams.

For a more adventurous take on fishing, join us on the river! Our premium scenic float trips are specifically designed for fishing or outdoor enthusiasts. Our professional guides provide access to river sections that are remote and not pressured by regular anglers.

What does this mean for your trip? Many of our local rivers and waterways have sections that require special equipment and knowledge to navigate the various shoals and rapids. This exclusive gateway to miles of backcountry waters cut deep into the Appalachian Mountains provides the angler with a truly amazing fishing experience. Fly fishing and conventional gear are provided.

Whatever your preferred species to fish — from trout to 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. Both wading trips and float fishing trips are offered, ranging from a 1-hour fly fishing casting clinic to a full 6-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.
