The New River is recognized as the second oldest river in the world and is estimated to be between 10 and 360 million years old. Characterized by its extensive ledge systems, deep pools, numerous rocky runs, and plentiful forage, the New River has all the necessary ingredients to garner the ranking as one of the best rivers in the country for producing citation-sized (20″ and up) smallmouth.
Our New River Guided Fishing Trips are run on over 100+ miles of the New River in the state of Virginia. We cater to both spin and fly anglers and run guided trips year-round. We are equipped with fully outfitted self-bailing rafts with fishing frames. We carry a full array of tackle on every trip and furnish our clients with G.Loomis spin rods, Shimano reels, and the like. Bonus fish include walleye, stripers, hybrids, musky, carp, rock bass, brim, rainbow trout, flathead or channel catfish, largemouth bass, and Kentucky spotted bass; all of which have been caught by our clients on guided trips.
NROC’s Guide Team have years of experience fishing the New River with proven results. Our guide service has been featured in a number of national and regional outdoor publications including Bassmaster, In-Fisherman, Cabelas Outfitter Journal, Harris’ Bass Fishing Annual, Blue Ridge Country, American Angler, Fly Fisherman, Musky Hunter, and VA/WV Game & Fish magazines.
Update – (12/13/19) It is hard to believe that 2020 will mark our 17th year in the outdoor business! Leigh, Sadie, and I are truly blessed and thankful to have been able to do this for so long and to have made so many lifelong friends through our business. Never complacent, Leigh and I started planning for 2020 this past summer and have been very deliberate in our preparation. Over the next few weeks and, in addition to our website updates, we are going to be announcing new offerings, new staff changes, new focuses, and new ideas. We are super excited and can’t wait to share them all with you. So, until then, please stay tuned and keep an eye on our websites and social media pages (and your email) for all the latest updates. And most importantly, we hope to see you in 2020!
