PAN Access Advisory

Cacapon River at Fishers Bridge


by Bing Garthright, 301-330-1225, August 30, 2004


About 10 miles downstream of Largent, WV, is Fishers Bridge, the middle of 3 WV 9 bridges over the Cacapon.  To reach the access, head north from the bridge on WV 9 and take the first left (upstream) onto Constant Run Rd.  Go exactly 0.7 miles and you’ll find space to park 2 or 3 vehicles on the right shoulder, across from the river.  (This is only 0.3 river miles upstream of Fishers Bridge.)  You could park 1 or 2 more vehicles a few hundred yards back towards WV 9.  Continuing about 0.2 miles further down Constant Run Rd away from WV 9, there is a good turn-around spot, but access and parking there is forbidden.


PLEASE NOTE: Most private owners and organizations never invite paddlers to use their land.  Many are kind enough to tolerate it.  Just as we paddle at our own risk, we use advisories, parking spaces, and access sites at our own risk.
