Step out the back door at The Hunt Cabin to fish Howard’s Creek, our on-property trout stream, where you’ll find plenty of browns and rainbows to keep your rod bent. Largemouth bass, bluegill, yellow perch, and catfish, fill the pond at The Hunt cabin and the ponds on The Snead, making them a great place to take anyone fishing. All of the waters on the GSC campus are catch and release, and Howard’s Creek is fly fishing only.
If you’re a bit more adventurous and want to get outside of The Club gates our local fisheries are excellent. The Greenbrier, James, and New Rivers are full of smallmouth and musky. We have several excellent local trout streams, and if you are really looking for a wilderness trip we have some of the best brook trout habitat left in the world.
If your skill level just isn’t up to par our excellent staff of guides will get you tuned up. Jacob Ott, our Director of Outdoor Pursuits is an International Federation of Fly Fishermen certified casting instructor and our roster of guides are excellent instructors and anglers. We can cover all aspects of our fishing, from basic casting instruction to more advanced techniques as well as gear selection and rigging.
Our location in the Greenbrier Valley allows us to take advantage of all the great waters and fisheries that surround us. From the high mountains and our native brook trout to the big rivers and bigger musky we’ll get you catching them all.

“The new astronomy program has held three events so far and each has been very well attended by members of all ages, from 4 and 5 year olds and up. Definitely the most interesting part is when Dave (Buhrman) hooks up the big telescope to the TV…it’s like watching a National Geographic special.” - Jacob Ott, Director of Outdoor Pursuits – Re: Astronomy Program (1.30.2007)
