It is summer fishing time and I took advantage of two days off last week to catch a 21-inch smallmouth and a 40-inch muskie. For the smallmouth, I went to Sandstone Falls, near Hinton in Summers County, about 30 minutes south of Beckley. It is a 15-foot high river-wide waterfall on the New River, and is easily one of the most beautiful areas in a state known for its beauty.


Sandstone Falls is located on the New River near Hinton,W.Va.

I used a one-man pontoon boat to paddle basically under the falls. The bass fishing was fantastic. Giant carp smacked the surface, but lazily swam away when my bait would pass by them. I landed around 35 fish, including the citation smallmouth.

Sandstone Falls is easily reachable from Calhoun County and is highly suggested as a place for trophy fish. For anyone looking for a one-day getaway, I couldn’t recommend a better place to fish.
