  Acres  30 

  Directions  Conaway Run Lake is a 30-acre impoundment located on Conaway Run Lake Wildlife Management Area (340 acres) approximately one mile southwest of Centerville in Tyler County. The lake is accessible from WV Route 18 via CR 48. 

  Description  The lake was built in 1963 with a maximum depth of 33 feet and an average depth of 13 feet. A concrete boat ramp, handicapped fishing pier, 10 tent or trailer camping sites, and picnic facilities are available. A trail surrounding most of the lake provides bank-fishing access. Electric motors only are allowed and the use of live minnows as bait is prohibited. 

  Fishery  Conaway Run Lake provides trout fishing in the spring and year-round warmwater fishing opportunities for largemouth bass, channel catfish, and bluegill. Trout are stocked once each month February through May. A 12-inch minimum bass size limit is in effect at Conaway Run Lake. This regulation means Conaway has a large quantity of bass, and an abundance of larger bluegill.
