You'd probably have to hit the mountain lakes to find some with trout in them, but shad are present in most of the lakes. It might be a little cold for bass, but you might be able to entice some striper with your swim baits.

Striper Sniper and one of the other guys do guiding on Jordan and I think they occassionally hit Kerr and the Roanoke for bass, striper, and crappie.

I think Stripers will fill the bill! Striper Sniper is your man!

THanks for the help...I guessing you can't post a phone number on here...As for a lake that has trout in it, no biggie...I'm looking for a lake with clearish water that has some type of big baitfsh and bass...

The baits I will be throwing, will be from 6" to 12" in length...In a wide range of patterns...

As for the area I will be in, that would be Durham...But I will travel wherever to give it a go...

I will be using my headcam the whole time...Hopefully I can stick one

See you on the water
Thanks again
D.

Harris Lake is probably the closest thing to what you're looking for in the central NC region - its weedy which keeps the sediment down and clears the water (a bit). Trout-free though.

I had read a report last year about a local rock quarry somewhere around Chapel Hill/Carrboro that stocked a variety of trout in the winter and offered fly-fishing access (for a fee). If they had a native LM population beforehand, that would really be the closest thing to SoCal LM fishing. I'm still looking for the name...will post when I find it.

I think somewhere on the board here we have a posting about a new record Kokonee salmon for NC. That lake might also offer possibilities, since they only run about as big as a trout and were stocked as forage fish there.

Fontana Lake it is...

I think I will fish wiggins mill when I first get there...if they are open...then later I will head to the mountains for Fontana Lake and give it a go. I think I have found a guide to let me do my thing...I think he might think I'm alittle off my rocker, throwing 12" to 16" trout baits that float looking for a bass. But I have to give it a go...

THanks again for all the help...If you on the water, look for a ******* with a camera on his head...that would be me:eek:

See you on the water
