    Went to Falls Lake planning on a family day of fishing. I knew the outboard was running a little rough but figured I had the trolling motor as a back up. Did not work out as I planned. The outboard acted worse this time. Now it cuts out every time put in gear. Was a little ways away from the...

    I went fishing today from 9am - 1pm at Falls Lake, launching at Route 50 boat ramp and fishing around several points to the right of the dam. The water temperature has gradually been creeping-up this last week and was between 62 and 64 degrees today. The wind had me blowing around a lot in my...

    Falls Lake is slowing down for the winter but there are bites to be found! Plenty of bait but it happens early in the morning or late in the evening. https://ncflysite.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/img_20161205_210051.jpg

    Looking for someone to fish with during the weekdays in the RDU area. I fish Falls & Harris. 19 foot Ranger. I am no pro, just a recreational angler. I miss plenty of fish, get skunked a lot, curse more than i should, but overall just enjoy fishing. I'm still trying to figure out these...

    Hi Ya'll! New to the forum, been in NC 3.5 yrs (this time) and have only fished a couple times, since I've been back. I moved from the mountains of TN, just across the NC line near Murphy and did a little trout fishing there, with friends. I like to fish for bass and cats, since I like to eat...
  7. Kayak Fishing
    Just started fishing from my new kayak and am looking for spots to put on on Falls Lake. I have used Upper Barton's once, but am looking for smaller spots that aren't so heavily populated with motor boats. I don't mind dragging the yak 50 yards either.... Any suggestions? Thanks!
  8. Meet and Greet
    Started shortly after 7 AM on a few locations off the bank at Falls. Lots of action from small white perch, panfish, and occasional cats. Nothing to write home about, but did end the morning with 3 cats that were keepers. Did end up releasing them though since we didn't want to bother...

    I would like to know what kind of bait fish live in Falls lake. I understand that Golden Shiners, and Shad are common, but I don't know what kind of shad. I am trying to find out so that I can rig up my bait to match the local forage. I had a good hit on a Rappalla baby bass top water...

    Ok, this is a long shot but thought I would try. My son is fishing in a kids tournament this coming weekend. I know nothing about this lake. Other then it seems shallow. I was thinking just looking at my map program of running under hwy 50 road and fishing some of the pockets around mile...

    Took a chance that this might be the last pretty day for a while and hit Falls this afternoon around 3pm with a plan to try something a little different. I thought I'd give the "shemstreet rig" a try - 3-way trolling rig with a large deep diving crankbait on one leader and a smaller white bass...

    Hey everybody! My name is Broc and I just got into fishing in June, fishing at a pond in Swan's Mill where one of my friends lives, and its become a little bit of an obsession. I have fished a couple of fingers off of Falls, and got absolutely nothing, but ive caught 9 or 10 bass in private...
