Popular activities at Claytor Lake include powerboating, sailing and various watersports. Fishing has also become a major attraction at Claytor Lake. The most plentiful fish in the lake are bluegill.
Enough is enough. 6,000 hydrilla eating carp have been called to action to take care of the growing plant before it's too late.
