Fishing around Waitesville, WV and Blacksburg, VA?

Rate this topic

I fished this past weekend in Pembroke VA which is about 20 miles outside of Blacksburg on the New River. I caught and landed 20+ fish on poppers on Friday. 4 of which were b/w 16 - 19 inches. There is a guide service and canoe rental shop that runs out of Pembroke as well (icanoethenew). Bring an 8wt and some poppers and you should be good to go.

It has been MANY years since I have fished there, but in days gone by you could drive from Blacksburg out Prices Fork Road to McCoy road all the way to the New River. There were several public parking areas from there and if you follow the road to the right along the river there were more. We caught a lot of nice fish at almost every spot EXCEPT McCoy falls which was a popular swimming and tubing area. If you see folks in the water floating in tubes skip it. The river is beautiful. Hope the fishing is as good now as it once was...
