Cave Mountain Lake - News & Reports

Fishing in Cave Mountain Lake was non-existent prior to June 1998. In a cooperative effort, U. S. Forest Service and Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries fisheries biologists developed a management plan that includes fish stocking, fish monitoring, angler access, and habitat improvement. As of 2004, a modest warmwater sport fishery has been established. In 2003, 70 adult channel catfish were released to further augment a diverse and growing fishery.
