: Greenbrier River: The New and Greenbrier rivers are providing some good fishing for smallmouth bass. Anglers should try white/chartreuse buzz baits, white plastic grubs, or small crankbaits or live bait such as helgrammites or softshell crayfish. Spots below or above shoals are good spots to try your luck. Fishing is best early and late or on cloudy days in all small impoundments in southern West Virginia and you should catch some fish. Try spots at the end of points, weed beds, or fallen timber. Best baits are plastic worms fished slowly along the bottom, spinnerbaits are also good choices.
