From the highlands of North Carolina through the ridges of Virginia and down the gorges of West Virginia, The New River Guide has all you need to know to plan your outdoor adventure on this remarkable waterway. Both casual and hardcore anglers will learn of the best places to fish for smallmouth bass. Canoeists will find the most enticing sections to paddle, whether they prefer tranquil sections or whitewater. The New River Guide is "must reading" for rafters and kayakers headed for Class IV rapids in the New River Gorge. Photographers will find endless opportunities in the rhododendron and sycamore covered hillsides of the North Carolina New, the 400-foot dolomite cliffs that punctuate the Virginia section, and the grandeur of the West Virginia's "Grand Canyon of the East." Detailed maps and photos complement the text to make the beauty and excitement of the New River easily accessible. About the Author: The author, Bruce Ingram, is an outdoor writer and lifelong resident of Virginia. He has floated the entire length of the New during his research for The New River Guide.
