Lake mooney in staff. va.

Recommended Posts

I didn't fish it.  Had to look it up because I didn't know they had changed the name from Rocky Pen.  I'm interested in hearing about it too.  I drove back there when they were getting it ready and was disappointed in how much they had stripped from the bottom. DGIF site says brush and stumps were left and artificial habitat was put in.   While searching, a PDF from Stafford County came up stating that it was closed to fishing.  They should really take that down since the DGIF site states that it is open and has been since July of 2017.

Third hand info coming:  A cousin of mine said he'd heard good numbers and decent size coming out of there.  Some 3-4 lbers which isn't bad considering the age of the lake.  Take it with a LARGE grain of salt, it is third hand info after all.  They flooded a couple of farm ponds when they filled it, I would imagine there are a few larger fish in there.  I might give it a shot next year.
