About Green River

The Green River is close to us in Hendersonville, North Carolina. It is just over the South Carolina/North Carolina border and is quiet and secluded.

Getting to the Green River is easy. Another name for the area is Green River Gorge. Located in the Green River Game Lands, this is a park that has many outdoor activities. If you are looking to spend the day outside doing more than one, this is an ideal location. When you enter the Green River Game Lands, you will see parking areas, hiking trailheads, and more.

We can provide you with a list of business to help not only with fishing gear but a picnic lunch as well. Also, be sure you have a current fishing license. You can purchase them online to make it a breeze.

There are two ways to enjoy Green River fishing, on your own or on a tour.

On Your Own
