• Surface Area: 845 Acres
Briery Creek Lake lies on the gently rolling hills of the south-central Piedmont, or plateau, region of Virginia. Embraced by an eco-rich forest, the lake is the focal point of the Briery Creek Wildlife Management Area. Best known for its trophy Largemouth Bass, the success of Briery Creek Lake fisheries lies with the planning and work performed by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. This arm of the state government of the Commonwealth of Virginia continues to own, manage, and plan into the future to insure the continued enjoyment of Briery Creek Lake by its visitors and inhabitants.

Impounded in 1986, Briery Creek Lake was stocked with Florida- and northern-Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Redear Sunfish (aka Shellcrackers), Channel Catfish, and Crappie. As part of the lake project plan, the treatment of timber at the original flooding of Briery Creek Lake has been a significant and enduring factor in the continuing success of the fisheries there. Trees were left standing or drum-chopped, leading to the development of flourishing and extensive aquatic vegetation structures.

“VDGIF biologists were correct in believing that the presence of Florida largemouth bass and the complex habitat would produce a high quality largemouth bass fishery”. - The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, Briery Creek WMA

Sound project planning and continuing quality management of Briery Creek Lake has resulted in consistently abundant, well-balanced fish populations.

”Historically, this land was farmed for tobacco and corn and for a number of years experienced significant soil erosion. More recently landowners have timbered much of the land surrounding the lake. Some of these areas now contained stand of mixed hardwoods, while other areas formerly owned by forest industry contain pure stands of loblolly pines.” - The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, Briery Creek WMA
