West Virginia is an angler’s paradise with 20,000 miles of streams and 100 lakes. Options abound for residents of Glade. Summersville Lake and Bluestone Lake offer quality bass and walleye fishing. Little Beaver and Plum Orchard Lakes are stocked regularly with rainbow and golden trout. Just over the hill is the New River with many outfitters and guides available for some of the best smallmouth bass fishing anywhere east of the Mississippi. The challenge of landing the Mountain State’s meanest game fish, the muskie, can be found at Stonewall and Sutton Lakes or just a short drive away in Greenbrier County’s Meadow Creek.
Wetting a line is never hard for Glade residents. Our own Chatham Lake will yield trout, bluegills, and catfish whether fishing from a boat, kayak, or from the shore. One can’t drive more than a couple of miles from Glade without crossing a trout stream. In fact, Glade Creek runs right through the resort property. Trout are plentiful in nearby streams like Big Clear Creek, Little Clear Creek, and Anthony’s Creek in Greenbrier County. Monroe County’s Second Creek is second to none. Close by state parks like Camp Creek and Babcock offer fly fisherman opportunities to land champion trout. The backcountry experience of Cranberry Glades, both branches of Cherry River, and Summit Lake bring fishermen and campers to the old lumber town of Richwood year-round.
