In Virginia, there are designated stocked trout waters and trout lakes that are acceptable for fishing, such as the Laurel Bed Lake. These lakes provide high-quality, year-round fishing for trout, according to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.
In Augusta County, there are two acceptable trout fishing lakes: Mills Creek and Coles Run Reservoirs. The lakes are managed as put-and-grow lakes and are stocked annually with small brook trout. These lakes have no facilities and are only accessible by foot after a half-mile walk. Lake Moomaw is the largest trout fishing lake that is in both Allegheny and Bath counties, and it is over 2,500 acres large, according to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.
