Cameron Lake, West Virginia Fishing

Cameron Lake Fishing Information

Location and Information: At only 6 acres, Cameron Lake is one of the smaller fisheries in West Virginia. It’s relatively small size aligns with other smaller northern panhandle fisheries, though it is considerably smaller than Dunkard Fork (Marshall County), Tomlinson Run (Hancock), Bear Rock Lake (Ohio County) and Castleman Run (Brooke and Ohio Counties). The lake is intended to serve as a water supply for the town of Cameron and, as such, may get low during summer months.

Boating and camping are prohibited on these water. Night fishing and the use of minnows as live bait, however, are permitted. Unlike many West Virginia fisheries, this lake does not receive Spring or Fall trout stocking.

Popular Fishing Species List:

According to the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, Cameron Lake contains a few species of popular fish. Despite being a small fishery, the lake does offer decent fishing throughout the year. So, what type of fish are in Cameron? While the lake does not stock trout throughout the year — which is a bit atypical, even for smaller fisheries in the Mountain State — it does feature several other species. Some of those species include channel catfish, bluegill, and bass — the latter two are considered to be available in strong numbers.
