Bluestone lake fishing

The New River is the best warm water fishery in West Virginia and is the second oldest river in the world.  Year after year, the New River produces more citation game fish than any other warm water river in West Virginia.  State fishing records have been recorded in the New River for smallmouth, white, and striped bass.  Bass (black, smallmouth, largemouth, rock, spotted, striped, hybrid striped, and white), bluegill, catfish, crappie, and muskellunge are all common species of fish found in the New River and Bluestone Lake.  The State of West Virginia periodically stocks Indian Creek, which flows into New River above Bluestone Lake, with trout.  Pipestem and Camp Creek are areas that flow into Bluestone and are stocked with trout.

West Virginia fishing license are required.
