Sleepy Creek Lake

Sleepy Creek Lake is a 205 acres (0.8 km2) impoundment of the Meadow Branch of Sleepy Creek in Berkeley County in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle. The reservoir is located at an elevation of 1,086 feet (331 m) on the 23,000 acres (90 km2) Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area, which lies within both Morgan and Berkeley Counties. The lake is also nestled between two mountain ridges: Sleepy Creek Mountain (1,905 ft) and Third Hill Mountain (2,172 ft). Sleepy Creek Lake was constructed by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources and was completed in 1962. The lake was then opened for fishing in 1964. The lake has a maximum depth of 26 feet (7.9 m) and an average depth of 9 feet (2.7 m).

Sleepy Creek Lake provides fishing for largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and channel catfish. WVDNR began stocking the reservoir with northern pike in 1989. In a nine-year period between 1994 and 2002, Sleepy Creek Lake yielded 129 trophy largemouth bass.

Famous quotes containing the words lake, sleepy and/or creek:

    This is my lake country.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    All men should have a drop of treason in their veins, if nations are not to go soft like so many sleepy pears.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    It might be seen by what tenure men held the earth. The smallest stream is mediterranean sea, a smaller ocean creek within the land, where men may steer by their farm bounds and cottage lights. For my own part, but for the geographers, I should hardly have known how large a portion of our globe is water, my life has chiefly passed within so deep a cove. Yet I have sometimes ventured as far as to the mouth of my Snug Harbor.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
