Western Virginia is home to Lake Moomaw, which offers a large variety of fish. The 2,530-acre lake is the state’s second-largest reservoir. With depths up to 152 feet, Lake Moomaw provides a fertile environment for warm- and cold-water fish, such as alewife, trout, black bass, yellow perch, panfish, catfish, chain pickerel, black crappie, rock bass, and sunfish. The lake also features ideal conditions for trout (brook, brown, rainbow). A Virginia fishing permit is required to fish here. It’s best to pay attention to state rules/regulations and posted signs/rules at the lake.
