Fishing At Mount Storm Lake
AKA: New Stony River Reservoir
What to fish for...
Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, walleye, bluegill, stripers and hybrid striped bass at Mount Storm Lake in West Virginia.
Stripers, smallmouth and largemouth bass and catfish are the main attraction at Mount Storm Lake, a 1,200-acre lake in the northeast part of the state, at Bismarck. The lake water is used to cool the Dominion Mt Storm power generating station, so the water returns to the lake much warmer. During cold weather this warmer water extends the growing cycle for all fish species, and accelerates their appetite. About 12 miles of shoreline provides cover for bass, catfish and bluegill, while striped bass, wipers and walleye tend to spend a lot of time offshore using ledges, points, humps and river channels as hangouts.
