MANNINGTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources announced today that the agency has entered into a long-term agreement with the city of Mannington to allow public hunting, fishing, and trapping on nearly 114 acres in Marion County.

The property has been incorporated into the existing 1,259-acre Dents Run Wildlife Management Area. The 10-acre Mannington Lake is also included in the agreement. State hunting, trapping, and fishing regulations apply.

“We’re excited to partner with the city of Mannington and the Mannington Lake Association to bring fishing back to the Little Dents Run Lake, which will now be called Mannington Lake for law enforcement and fish management purposes,” said WVDNR Director Brett McMillion. “We look forward to seeing how this agreement improves access to exceptional hunting, trapping, and fishing opportunities in Marion County.”
