Here are a Few Lake Gaston NC / VA Facts:

  • Lake Gaston has over 20,000 acres of "high quality" water
  • It is 34 miles long, and approximately one and one half miles wide at the lower end of the lake - and has over 350 miles of shore.
  • Lake Gaston begins at Kerr Dam, a lake built in 1953 for flood control. And, below Lake Gaston is Roanoke Rapids Lake, a smaller lake constructed in 1955 for hydroelectric power. The Gaston Dam was completed in 1963, and borders the counties of Mecklenburg and Brunswick in Virginia and the counties of Warren, Halifax and Northampton in North Carolina.
  • Normal height of the water is 200 feet above sea level and by regulation the water depth may vary only one foot plus or minus, from that except in case of emergency. And with practically no pollution, the water is almost drinkable without treatment.
  • Lake Gaston is well stocked with game fish which include striped bass or rock fish, large mouth bass, crappie, sunfish and several varieties of catfish. Other species of fish sometimes caught are walleye, yellow perch and chain pickerel. A valid license for either Virginia or North Carolina permits fishing from a boat in either state. No license is required for those under 15.
