Smith Mountain Lake is a gorgeous, 40-mile long, 20,600-acre lake, with 500 miles of shoreline, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of rural southwestern Virginia. Smith Mountain Lake was created to generate electricity, and to help manage water flows downstream. The damming of the Blackwater and Roanoke Rivers formed this reservoir in a filling process that began on September 24, 1963 – and ended almost 2.5 years later on March 7, 1966. Among the lake’s many water activities are power boating, canoeing, sailing, parasailing, swimming, fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding, and jet skiing. SML’s lakefront includes seven free public boat launching sites, plus paid launches at more than a dozen marinas.

If trout fishing is your enjoyment the Smith River, located in Henry County, is known for its native brown trout fishery. Fly fishermen enjoy casting to these trout year-round in the tailwaters of Philpott Lake, which keeps the water cool and the fish active. In addition to native brown trout found there, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries stocks portions of the river with rainbow trout as part of their put-and-take-program.

Philpott Lake is a 3,000-acre reservoir located in the northwest corner of Henry County and is home to Philpott Marina.

Philpott Lake offers pleasure boaters and paddlers a variety of places to explore including hidden waterfalls, scenic rock outcrops and three islands. Deer Island, the largest of the three, offers nightly campsite rentals that are only accessible via boat.
