Summersville Lake - Fishing
This vast reservoir is an angler’s dream, lined with sandstone cliffs and chock-full of fish.
Destination Distance From Downtown
The lake itself is great for all ages and abilities; but, the hiking trails to get there can be long, steep, and challenging.
Time To Complete
Though the water in the lake is drastically reduced in the fall, this can be a prime time for fishing because the temperatures are cooler, and the fish have fewer places to hide.
On Leash Only
Dogs are allowed in many areas, but they have to be on a leash. Summersville Lake is also popular with boaters, swimmers, and rock climbers, so keep your furry friend close by.
There is a $3 entrance fee.
