Across Northampton Boulevard from the Little Creek side of Lake Whitehurst in Norfolk is Lake Smith, a shallow 193 acre lake averaging only five feet in depth. The largemouth bass population is good and there are opportunities to catch a citation. The lake also has white catfish, crappie, white perch, bluegill, and flathead catfish. However, the perch and bluegill populations are stunted. Shore and boat fishing are permitted.
Boat permits are required, and gas motors (up to 9.9 horsepower) are allowed. The City of Norfolk has amended their codes to allow boats with outboard motors larger than 9.9 horse power to access the lake if the gas tanks are removed or the outboard is disabled (prop removed). Bank fishing is restricted to an area around the fishing station and requires a permit as well. As with the other Norfolk lakes, the concession is closed.
