Guide To Fishing At Spruce Run Reservoir
AKA: Spruce Run Lake
Featuring great fishing for hybrid striped bass, northern pike and big bass, Spruce Run Reservoir is a 1,300-acre lake in the northwest part of the state. Spruce Run Boat Ramp allows launching of all types of boats.
The lake has a boat-motor limit of 9.9 horsepower, so canoes, kayaks, row boats and electric-motor watercraft are ideal here. Bass, bluegill and pike anglers can cruise the 15 miles of shoreline in search of their favorite fish species. Hybrid stripers tend to school in the deeper parts of the lake, often following schools of baitfish. Visitors can rent rowboats, canoes, sailboats and motor boats for a day at the Spruce Run Boat Rental. Kayak Launch State Park allows portage of non-powered boats.
