About: -

Located just a long stone's throw from Interstate 79, Stonewall Jackson Lake is one of the state's premier fishing destinations. According to fisheries biologist Kevin Yokum, anglers fishing the lake this year can expect to find both saugeyes and walleyes.

Stonewall Jackson Lake is a federal flood-control water. It covers 2,650 acres in Lewis County. There are no horsepower restrictions.

Fairly young when compared to many Army Corps of Engineers reservoirs in the state, Stonewall Jackson was spared the hatchet job typical of most impoundments of this type. When the lake was built, a fair amount of timber was left, particularly in the backs of bays and coves. This cover is beneficial to all of the lake's fish populations, walleye and saugeye included.

Though the DNR no longer stocks saugeyes, fish will be available for some years to come. According to Yokum, Stonewall Jackson will be a good bet this spring for latching on to a lunker saugeye. He said the lake contains average numbers of walleyes.

Gizzard shad are not present in Stonewall Jackson Lake. Several minnow species and young panfish provide an abundant forage base, though.

Boat access areas on Stonewall Jackson Lake include Georgetown, Glady Fork, Jacksonville, Stonewall Jackson State Park and Vandalia Bay.
