    What do you prefer to catch?

    There are quite a few places to fish.
    Lake Crabtree is best for either catfish or carp
    Umstead for bass.

    You can also fish Lake Johnson or Beaver Dam lake which is a part of the Falls Lake System.
    There is also Jordan and Harris. However, on the larger lakes you have to pay much more attention to wind.

    I just got back from a 3 hour trip to Beaver dam. One other yakker out there. I caught one small bass and had a few bumps trolling. About what I expected. Watched a bald eagle for a bit too.

    You could try the Eno River. Launch at Red Mill boat launch.

    Lake Crabtree park for catfish.
    My worst day there was 8 - best day 46.
    Most around 1 pound - personal largest there was 6.4 pounds and 5.2 pounds.
    Several in the 3-4 lp. range.

    Catch and release there - there are poisons in the ecosystem.

    Buckhorn res is only 30 mins from Clayton. I've been getting some good fish out there lately....quality over quantity
