Thread: Jordan Lake Shore Fishing For Free

    Default Jordan Lake Shore Fishing For Free

    Hello,

    Where can I park my car, walk short distance and fish from the shore at Jordan Lake without having to pay $5 Entrance Fee...I know there has to be an area with a lake this big. Would the Ebenezer Church Boat launching area do? No gate right? No pay station?

    There are three Public Fishing Areas on Jordan - ncwildlife.org has all the details on those, and all the other PFAs in the state. I'd recommend Bell's Church for starters -- it's got a T-dock, and I've heard they put lights out...

    Good bank fishing areas near the intersection of Beaver Creek Rd and Pea Ridge. Could also try the Robeson creek ramp or Robeson creek canoe access area.

    Could also try out at the Farrington point launch ramp. During the week anyway hardly any boats there so plenty of parking (try not to take the spots closest to the ramp, it is a Boating Access Area, not a Fishing Access Area), then walk the shore either direction.

    Agree the Bells Church one is better set up for shore fishing though.

    During park hours (seasonal, daytime), I think they route boat ramp traffic through the park gate and collect the $5. If you get there before park hours, the 24hr gates are open. Its not a ramp I use and I only saw it like this once, on a holiday. Could have been something special for holidays/weekends.

    Heres the deal at Ebenezer. They have 2 gates, a gate for the park and a gate for the boat ramps. They charge $5 to get in between 8 AM and 8 PM and all traffic enters at the park entrance. Before 8 AM and after 8 PM the park gate is closed and the boat ramp gate is open and free. Between Memorial day and Labor day they collect money 7 days a week during park hours. April 1st to memorial day and labor day til October 1st they only collect on weekends. October through march it is free 7 days a week.

    I've never fished Ebenezer before and was thinking about taking the family out there this weekend. Is it just $5 entrance fee and that's it or do they also charge per person to fish? Are there plenty of bank spots in there, anyone point out some "key" spots to catch lots of panfish to hold the attention of a 4 year old? lol

    Each sections to the park cost $5 per car. More for buses. After you get in, fishing is free. Should fish at the free entrance farrington road Public Area. I'd only pay $5 entrance if the family want to swim.
