River was in great condition. Caught 7 smallmouth and 2 rock bass on 4" stick worm, spinnerbait, and hellgramites. Had rain and thunderstorms most of the afternoon. Missed several hits. Fish ranged from 6" to 14". Found a remote section that I plan to fly fish for smallies in the very near future.

What part of the state does the Gauley run through?

Sorry for the late response Mickey but the Gauley is divided into what locals call the top Gauley and the lower Gauley. The top Gauley is the section of river upstream from Summersville Lake and the lower Gauley is located below the dam. The lower Gauley is known for its whitewater rafting during the drawdown of S'ville Lake which starts in Sept. This section of river is very remote and access is very limited. The top Gauley is very scenic and access is a little better.
