Beaver Creek Reservoir-A Great Place to Paddle

There are so many things to do near our Virginia cabin rentals.¬† Just this past Friday, I went fishing with one of my buddies, Todd, on Beaver Creek Reservoir. We had seen that the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries predicted good bass fishing there, so we took his father-in-law’s boat, a small fishing boat with a trolling motor. That makes fishing a lot easier than trying to control your movements with a paddle.

While we were there, I kept thinking about how great this lake would be for a paddling excursion. The lake is 104 acres, making it nearly 5 times the size of Sherando. Additionally, there are lots of great coves for exploration. You could easily spend a whole day there. The shoreline is mostly wooded, so you really feel like you’re a part of nature.

I’m going to take my daughter Jordan back one of these days for a few hours of paddling, and I’m sure we’ll have a great time.

As for our fishing report? We had a great time, even though we didn’t catch many fish. I think we ended up with three between us!
