welcome to the sight jankerson, not sure really where to fish from off the banks up that way mainly fish from my boat. I'm sure there are many NCAnglers though however that know some hot spots up that way.
Hey Jankerson, will have to be on the lookout for you around Raleigh.
I've not fished Wheeler at all, have fished Jordan some from boat & kayak.
Here's a couple of bank fishing spots that have been mentioned recently:
If your other half already has a kayak, you're home free. Join us in the kayak crowd!
- The big lake at Umstead Park - pretty good shoreline access. I think you can rent jons/rowboats in the summer (somebody correct me if I'm wrong).
- Beaverdam rd - between Durham and Chapel Hill. Feeds an arm of Jordan Lake and the white bass have been running up there recently.
- Weaver Creek access area at Jordan Lake. Off Beaver Creek Rd, south of the Ebeneezer launch, just south of the Pea Ridge intersection.
I'm a fellow newbie in Raleigh area. I went to Beaver Dam lake (part of Falls Lake Park) today. I was going to kayak fish but too windy so I cast for about 30 min. from shore then went home. Only caught one 9" bass.
