At Eagle’s Nest Outfitters we have designed our fishing trips to provide you, the fisherman, with a maximum of outdoor enjoyment and minimum of hassle. The South Branch of the Potomac River offers excellent fishing for smallmouth bass, some largemouth bass, trout (rainbow, brook, brown and golden rainbow), sunfish, channel catfish, eels and carp. Within a 45 minute drive, there are over 200 miles of trout streams.
The warmwater angler will be equally entertained with 350 miles of stream and some of the best smallmouth bass waters in the state, including the South Branch of the Potomac. Pound for pound the smallmouth bass is the fightingest fish in the river anywhere and we have plenty of those. It is not uncommon to catch up to 75 bass in one day of fishing. Each year we are featured in national magazines such as “National Geographic,” “Sports Afield, ” “Bass Masters,” “ESPN” and “TNN” to name a few. .
One outdoor writer told us that he has fished across the U.S.A. and still finds the South Branch his favorite. At Eagle’s Nest we cater every fishing trip to meet your needs and wants. We offer trips from six hours to seven days. For those of you who want to do trout fishing, the Smoke Hole/Big Bend to Base is the trip you want to fish. If you are a bass fisherman any of our trips have bass in them. We recommend the Base to Fisher Bridge trip, because it’s a catch and release area, which is known for big bass.
