kiddie fishing hole where young kids can
fish independently.
Lake Moomaw, on the other hand,
sits in northern Alleghany County and
connects to the southern portion of Bath
County. The lake's 43 miles of completely
undeveloped shorelines are surrounded
by the wilderness, making for some
perfect " secret " fishing spots. Like
Douthat Lake, Lake Moomaw also offers
a phenomenal fishing experience-
especially with bass fishing.
" Lake Moomaw continues to have great
success with Bass Fishing tournaments
and is a popular spot for camping in the
Highlands, " says Alan Dressler, Director
of Parks and Recreation for the City of
Covington.
Lake Moomaw is under the management
of the U.S. Forest Service, but has a local
group of volunteers that help out, too.
" They are always working diligently
to upkeep and improve restrooms and
campsites, as well as the beach and dock
areas on the Alleghany County side of the
lake, " Dressler says.
Like the trails and waterways of
Alleghany County, the recreation facilities,
including the Jackson River Sports
Complex, are also continuously being
improved for a more enjoyable experience.
The sports complex has fields for athletic
events, golfing, a spacious playground,
