West Virginia:Conaway Run Lake Trout Stocking Suspended for Dam Repairs

CENTERVILLE, W.Va. — Trout stocking at Conaway Run Lake in Tyler County has been suspended until repair work to the dam is completed, the Division of Natural Resources announced on Wednesday.Adverse weather conditions have delayed the needed dam repair work at this facility.

The dam at Conaway Run Lake has been stabilized to ensure safety, proper function and structural integrity, but the boat ramp, parking lot and access road to the dam have been closed to ensure the safety of anglers and the public. Construction is expected to resume in the spring. The DNR plans to reopen these facilities in the early summer.
