Pack up your best rod and reel and cast a line along the Greenbrier River, Meadow River, or several spots along their tributaries. Rainbow trout, brook trout, and brown trout eagerly await your arrival to try and elude you.
Should you be a catch & release fisher, then hit the Greenbrier-Monroe county line for Second Creek. Th You can easily wade along the banks and out to deeper holes in search of some trout. Second Creek is a fly fishing only creek, so bring along some excellent flies to whiz out into the waters.
Guests at The Greenbrier have fantastic fly-fishing opportunities along Howard’s Creek for the three miles that the creek runs through the resort.
Head just upstream from The Greenbrier to more of Howard’s Creek for some tasty rainbow trout. The monthly releases occur January through April, so plan accordingly. If you get tired from reeling in your hefty hall, take a seat at one of the Creekside benches at Big Draft Bridge and the walking trail that takes you to Brad Paisley Community Park. You will not be disappointed with the excellent seating options.
Largemouth bass lovers hit Lake Sherwood in the Monongahela Nation Forest less than 20 miles from White Sulphur Springs. The largemouth bass is popular among sport fish in the United States. You would be the star of the fishing expedition if you were able to catch your daily limit and provide dinner!
For those that are not fishing inclined, book an excursion with one of the local outfitters. Services provided range from a half or full-day guided fishing trip and allow you the opportunity to cast your line for some smallmouth bass, or that ever-elusive Musky.
Fishing excursions can be arranged on the Greenbrier River, and some outfitters specialize in wading, spin fishing, and fly fishing, so the options are endless.
Please remember that a West Virginia fishing license is required to fish the beautiful streams, creeks, lakes, and rivers that wind and rest in or near White Sulphur Springs. There may be options available if you are out of town, so check with DNR on what you may need. Should you be booking with an outfitter, be sure to inquire about what you will need beforehand, so there are no surprises.
Rivers, lakes, streams, creeks, and other water tributaries in White Sulphur Springs offer some of the best trout and Musky fishing!
