Fishing is one of the most popular outdoor sports endeavors enjoyed in West Virginia. Young West Virginians learn early the art of casting, and by their teens are adept at hunting out trout in clear mountain streams, despite which there are plenty of fishing holes to be scouted angled. Bait and tackle shops exist in almost every county in the state, and camps, for rent or sale, may be found on almost every stream.
