    Default Looking to bank fish the Cape Fear

    Hey folks! I live in Hope Mills area, and at the moment, am quite boatless. Could someone recommend a decent area to walk the banks and try my luck? Thanks in advance! Good luck!

    Hey Winterborn, you are in luck.... I took my boat out on Cape Fear Saturday and saw the best bank fishing area I've ever seen on the river, and I think it's pretty close to you.

    It's at Arnette Park, 2165 Wilmington Highway. Fayetteville, NC 28306. There are little trails in the back of the park that head back to the river, and they have a pretty open beach area back there along the river.

    I moved to NC about 4 weeks ago and have been looking for river shore fishing areas since, this is by far the best spot I've found.

    PS - The river behind the park ran between 12 - 14 feetdeep, my fish finder did pick up what appeared to be two cats sitting at thebottom, and all the other fish where hanging out at about 8 feet deep.

    Your welcome, I tried for weeks to find a good shore spot, and it was tough. Wasn't until the current went down and I could take my little inflatable out that I found that spot. Make sure to post if you go out there and let us know how you did..

    Tight lines
