In the Park (What to Do)



Lake Gaston is well stocked with game fish including striped bass or rockfish, largemouth bass, crappie, sunfish, and several varieties of catfish. Other species of fish sometimes caught are walleye, yellow perch, and chain pickerel.

Fishing licenses are required. A valid license for Virginia or North Carolina permits fishing in “the lake” in either state, from boats or shore, in waters accessible by boat. No license is required for those under 16 years of age.
