This 1,110-acre water supply reservoir for the City of Newport News is situated along the New Kent and James City County line. The reservoir provides a rather scenic area for anglers to try their luck on a variety of fish species. The principle species that attract anglers are largemouth bass, bluegill, chain pickerel, redear sunfish, black crappie, and white perch. Carp, bowfin, and longnose gar provide alternative quarry. Gizzard shad and blueback herring are the main forage species.
