Cacapon River in West Virginia

Trip Overview

We put in at an unmarked Public Stream Access on Cold Stream Rd. and paddled to the Rt 127 Bridge. About 7 miles.

We fished the whole way and had some nice smallmouth. The water was down about a foot from the last time in March, but this allowed us to pick our lines more easily.
Very enjoyable day on the water.
