Leesville Lake Striper Fishing Opportunities
by VDGIF

Posted ImageThe current state record striped bass was caught from Leesville Reservoir in 2000. This reservoir does support a fair striped bass population but capitalizing on this fishery can be a challenge. Striped bass seasonally utilize the cooler water in the upper reaches of the reservoir during the summer months for thermal refuge. However, forage is very limited in this area of the reservoir and most striped bass move downstream to utilize additional forage when water temperatures are cooler during the late fall through early summer. VDGIF has recently been experimenting with increased stocking rates and protocols to improve the striped bass population at Leesville Reservoir. Initial evaluations have shown a substantial increase in the striped bass population beginning in 2011. Striped bass fishing should be very good for fish 20-25 inches with limited numbers of larger fish.
