New River Smallmouth "Your guides to Trophy New River Smallmouth"
New River Outdoor Co. is located in Pembroke, Virginia (25 min. west of Blacksburg/Virginia Tech). All of our guided smallmouth trips are run on the New River, recognized as some of the best smallmouth and musky water in the entire country. Britt and his team of professional guides have plied these ancient waters for decades in pursuit of trophy smallmouth bass and musky. The team tailors each day on the water to their specific clients’ needs and revels in the memories that are made to last a lifetime. Please call (540-921-7438) or email at info@newriveroutdoorco.com for more info or to book a trip.
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.

2018 Updates
Straight From the New River - Scott and Mark traveled up from NC to fish with me earlier in April. On the way to the ramp, they asked me how the bite had been. I jokingly responded, "awful." We laughed, and I told them to get ready to fish their butts off, the bite had been much like the weather. They responded, "maybe today will be better?" As I have seen the New River do so many times over the years, when you least expect it, she responds with a scorching hot bite. This day was no different as we totaled FOUR Virginia Citation smallmouth topped off by Scott's belly full 4lb 12oz New River beauty. Not too long after, Mike traveled up from Richmond to fish with me in almost the exact same blue bird/post-front conditions. At the end of the day, our best ten fish totaled 182" with numerous other nice fish to boot including his 4lb 4oz beauty. While the New River can be tough, she can also be great, and the only way to hit these bites is to be on the river when IT happens. We will be out there, and hope you will come join us this year on the river. 540-921-7438.
Summer Fishing Is Near - Summer fishing, starting towards the latter part of May, is an excellent times for anglers of all experience levels. Numbers of fish are much more available (in addition to some big fish), and the weather is typically more stable making for a relaxing time on the water. It is not uncommon to catch 100 fish in a full-day outing. Topwaters and soft plastics shine during this period. This is also a great time for those wishing to fly fish for smallies as we turn to big topwater cicada bugs for big overgrown smallies. Remember, it's fishing, not catching, and each day on the water is completely different.
