Braxton County
Saltlick Pond 9

  Lake  Saltlick Pond 9 

  Acres  15 

  Directions  Saltlick Pond Number 9 is a 15-acre impoundment located on County Route 15/6, 4 miles north of Newville. The lake was constructed in 1967 with a maximum depth of 16 feet and an average depth of 5 feet. 

  Description  There are no special restrictions on the lake; however, no boat launching facilities are available and during wet weather, portions of Route 15/6 can only be traveled by 4-wheel drive vehicles. Most property bordering the lake is in private ownership. 

  Fishery  Saltlick Pond Number 9 was drained in 2000 for dam repairs and subsequently restocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish. Angler success has been excellent for bass and sunfish, particularly during the spring. Several beaver lodges, located around the lake’s edge, provide excellent cover. During the summer, rooted aquatic weed growth is extensive, and the upper half of the lake is often completely covered by vegetation
