Greasy Creek Outfitters was started in 1997 by Mike Smith, who at first fished the New River for his own enjoyment, later bringing friends along who spread the word to their friends and lead to the birth of 'Greasy Creek Outfitters.' In 2006, Darin 'Gil' Gillenwater joined Mike in the GCO venture as a guide with a lifetime of fishing and outdoor experience. When Mike started New River Fly Fishing in 2009, it created the opportunity for Gil to own and operate the company he loved while still keeping a professional relationship with Mike while cross-promoting both ventures. Today, Greasy Creek Outfitters is owned by Gil and Kelly Gillenwater and continues to operate just as it did under Mike Smith.
Offers fly fishing
For an additional fee of $175 for 2 anglers and $50 per additional angler, we can provide you with hassle free camping on an island right on the river. We will set up the site for you, cook a camp style dinner in the evening and breakfast the next morning while we stay at an adjacent site. This is primitive camping on an island with the only facility being pit toilets located in the center of the island. BYOB, as in Bring Your Own sleeping Bag or we can provide a limited number if necessary. This isn't 'Glamping'; just good old fashioned camping on the waters edge with food, a camp fire and plenty of opportunity to night fish as well! We can camp before or after a day of fishing or in between a two-day trip.
