Holt's is a reservoir and access is controlled by Town of Butner, entrance is on Old 75 about 1/4 mi south of the dump. It is public, allows gas motors, Is steep and deep (12 ft offshore can be 27 ft or more in depth), I've seen depth of 90 ft. towards the center just off the ramp. Ramp is good w/ docks....either 2 or $3 charge to fish off the bank...$5 for one person and boat launch. Lot of shoreline. Hope this helps..
