Fishing Smith Mountain Lake500 miles of shoreline with coves make Smith Mountain Lake a picture perfect and angler perfect destination. Locals don't blink an eye at a 20-pound striper in this paradise for fishing.
Stripers helped make the lake famous for its fishing but our waters also host excellent populations of largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappies and bluegills. Other gamefish of note dwell in the lake as well, and all have their followers. Channel catfish are found in the deeper points of the lake and there is a dedicated group of walleye hunters. Muskies, white bass, rock bass and redbreast sunfish round out the gamefish contingent.
Whether you're new to fishing or just new to the lake, a popular way to learn the ins and outs of our huge lake is hiring a pro. Our professional fishing guides are listed and linked below.
