catching fish
Bath County has some of the finest fishing in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Jackson and Cowpasture Rivers, as well as smaller tributaries, offer excellent fly fishing opportunities. Lake Moomaw is a unique “two story” sport fishery, which means the reservoir is deep enough to support both warm water and cold water fish. Lake Douthat at Douthat State Park is a 50-acre lake stocked with rainbow, brown and brook trout.
