Located in Fayette County, Green Lick Reservoir (also known as Jacobs Creek Reservoir) is a 101-acre impoundment owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and managed by the Fish and Boat Commission for public fishing and boating.


The Commission stocks the lake with Walleye and Channel Catfish fingerling. Commonwealth Inland Waters regulations apply for all fish species.


Boating is limited to boats powered by electric motors and un-powered boats. One launch ramp is 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).
