High Point LAKE

Located in southern Somerset County near Mount Davis, the highest point in Pennsylvania, High Point Lake is a 338-acre impoundment owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and managed by the Fish and Boat Commission for public fishing and boating.

FISHING

High Point Lake provides good angling opportunities for Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Northern Pike, Yellow Perch, Black Crappie, Bluegill and Bbullhead. All species of fish are managed under statewide regulations for Commonwealth Inland Waters.

The Commission historically has stocked the lake with Walleye fingerling.

Fish habitat structures have been placed in the lake (view PDF map) over the years as part of the Commission's Fish Habitat Improvement Program.

BOATING

Boating is limited to boats powered by electric motors and un-powered boats. Two launch ramps are available along with associated parking facilities.

Un-powered boats may be moored at the lake in accordance with Commission property regulations. To be used at the lake, boats must be registered or have a valid launch permit (permits are issued by the Commission or PA Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources).
