    I live near Charles Town, WV, and fish for Catfish almost exclusively in the lower James River, for winter blues. I am looking to do some fishing in my home state. I have been reading up on the flathead and channel cat fishing at Stonewall Jackson and Burnsville. Wondering if anyone on the WV boards has been fishing either lately, and if so, can provide some tips on bait, tactics, etc.

    live bait. and when you go to Burnsville go to the marina and ask around and find burnsville darrell. the man knows the lake inside and out literally. his real name is darrell brown. theres quite a few videos out on him.

    They are in stonewall ! I'd fish the coves, and the feader streams flowing into the lake ! Personally i've never fished stonewall it's hard to find time between the mon., tygart lake, and burnsville lake.

    Going to go fish it before the season is out !

    Burnsville i'd fish knawls' creek, and little knawls creek !!!
    Burnsville is full of Shovelhead Structure.

    If you never been there you'll understand when you see the lake !

    We need some rain so bad in the great state of WV, it's getting scary !
