Mills Creek (14 acres) and Coles Run (11 acres), are located in the Glenwood and Pedlar Ranger District of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. They are both Augusta County water supply reservoirs that opened to public fishing in 1990. The lakes are managed as put-and-grow lakes, with the stocking of brook trout beginning in 1989. Historically, 13-inch wild brookies have come from these waters. Samples usually turn up brook trout in the 8-14 inch range.
There are no facilities and access is about a 0.5 walk to Coles Run and 1.5 miles to Mills Creek. For more information, call the Glenwood Ranger District in Natural Bridge Station at 540-291-2189. Access is west of Route 664 at Sherando off of Forest Development Road (FDR) 42.
