Fishing for More

September 5, 2012

Located just beneath the Appalachian Trail close to the Virginia State line in Monroe County, the Wilson Mill Farms is West Virginia’s only certified organically grown trout processor. There is over one-mile of stream fishing and 6 ponds stocked for day fishing in a serene setting. Located on 150 acres with pristine waters and scenic landscapes, the farm is an excellent place to visit for a fun day of fishing as well as an overnight stay in one of the cabins or tent sites.

On September 22 Bettye Earley, together with the Monroe Arts Alliance,  is hosting a Wine, Music & Food Festival from from 2 to 9pm. Rain or shine,  it will be an fun packed event with local wines, foods, musics and crafts.

Two West Virginia wineries, Watts Roost  and Vu Ja De will provide tastings of their products.   Local eateries will offer food for sale including Bella The Corner Gourmet (Lewisburg), The Crazy Baker (Renick), Vines & Grinds (White Sulphur Springs), Kalico Kitchen (Union),  The Market (Hinton) and Old Virginia Smokehouse (Pearisburg) will provide gourmet delights for sale.

Local artists, artisans and craftspeople will also have items on display and for sale. 

Members of Monroe Fine Artists there will include Jim Clewell, Marianne Devers, Sunny Williams, Laurie Ardison and others.  The 2013 Monroe County Calendar, a collection of seasonal paintings by Judith Bair will be available.  Mike and Judy McDade of  Jamit’ Baskets will demonstrate basket weaving.  Monroe County Tales,  featuring winners of the 2012 Writing Contest and published in a limited edition of 200 hand-crafted copies, will also be on sale at the festival while supplies last.

And threading through all the other enjoyable things to see and taste is the music which will be provided by The Carpenter Ants,  Bob McGraw, and Doc Greenberg’s Patient Jazz Band.


Wilson Mill Trout Farm is located on Wilson Mill Road, off 219 in Lindside, WV. Follow the signs to the festival, and look for more details in local media.

    Where is a map showing the site?

      I could not find a map to download that would indicate the location at a scale that would be useful. Use your favorite mapping website to plug in Wilson Mill Road in Lindside. Wilson Mill Trout Farm is located on Wilson Mill Road, off 219 in Lindside, WV. Signs to the festival will be posted.
      From I-77 get off at the exit for Princeton but head east on US 460 and then north on US 219. Call the number posted in the blog for information.
