Gatewood Reservoir - Fishing Opportunities

Big bluegill and redear sunfish are the main attractions at this clear water lake. Fishing for largemouth bass in 2000 was good, with some over five pounds caught. Smallmouth bass are also found in this cool water lake, providing the opportunity for anglers to catch occasional 2-3 pound fish. Crappie can be caught around the numerous beaver lodges located on the lake. Channel catfish are stocked every two years, and an occasional 20-pounder is caught.
