Rivers Fishing

Canoe, Kayak, Swim, and Whitewater

River Access Hole is a spot on the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River. This scenic forested area has beautiful rock formations and running water, creating breathtaking peaceful views for all visitors. 

In this area the water is shallow and slow enough for wading and swimming. Waders and swimmers should wear foot protection as the river bed is extremely rocky and varies in depth unexpectedly in some places. Swimmers swim at their own risk and should be cautious when approaching the water. The water here is known for it's fantastic fly fishing, especially for being the best trout fishing in West Virginia.

This point of river access is also great for kayaks, canoes and rafts. Anyone floating the river, regardless of vehicle, should be cautious of rocks and rapids in this area. This water provides a scenic challenge for anyone wishing to enjoy floating on the Potomac.
