Berwind Lake Wildlife Management Area

Warriormine, WV

The 85-acre Berwind Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) consists of steep mountain forest surrounding 20-acre Lake Berwind. Principal game harvested in the management area include deer, squirrel, raccoon, and turkey, though hunting is limited due to the limited acreage of the management area.

Lake Berwind is equipped with a Class-Q fishing pier and accommodates fishing for warm-water species. Trout is stocked from February until May. Berwind Lake provides a warmwater fishery for largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish. Adult channel catfish are stocked annually in June.

Berwind Lake Wildlife Management Area is located in southern McDowell County four miles south of War, WV, and 12 miles south of Welch, WV, on highways WV-16 and WV-12/4.
