Back Creek

Back Creek is located in a very rugged mountain setting west of the Jackson River near the West Virginia line in Bath County. Most Virginia anglers forego this stream as they don't drive the extra 20 minutes past the Jackson to get there. This keeps fishing pressure to a minimum on this river. The stream is about 25 feet in width with moderate gradient and excellent fly fishing opportunities. The stream has been extensively reconstructed to improve trout habitat by Dominion Power, who constructed a pump storage facility just upstream. The land adjacent to this stream section is managed for recreation by Dominion Power. In addition to trout fishing, the area offers a campground, picnic pavilion, outdoor games and two warm water lakes for fishing and swimming.
