New River near Ansted, West Virginia
I recommend a guide if you are new to fishing out here. Yes the whitewater makes the fishing difficult, but they also hold some of the best smallmouth bass I have ever had the pleasure of fishing for. You don't know chaos until you are fighting a 5lbs smallmouth in a roaring rapids while your raft is being whipped about. Whatever you have to pay the guide will be worth it by the end of the day.
