Welcome aboard. There's Fort Bragg has the most accessible fishing in the area, but you will have to buy a Fort Bragg Permit. You can purchase your permit ar the Hunting and Fishing center on McKellar's Road of Fort Bragg. They will provide you with the Fort Bragg regulations, Map and Fishing Lake information when you buy your permit. Also, there's Lake Rim on Raeford Road. If you're into to catfish you may want to try fishing below one of the Dams on the Cape Fear River along Highway 87 on the way to Wilmington. Also, Lake Jordan and Shearon Harris aren't too far away for some bigger water.
my name is robert i am new to this website. and you just answered a big question for me. i will be moving to spring lake next month. and i have been wondering where i could go fishing with my daughter. if you have any other ideas for the spring lake area say within a 50 mile radious of town i would much apreciate it. i love to angle fish for bass and fly fish for trout. again thanks for the info you already posted.
Raven Rock state park of 421 South-east of Sanford, Harris lake and Jordan lake of US1 to the north east of Sanford. Also there's a NC Wildlife boat access area/fishin area of 42 North on the Cape Fear River just NE of Sanford as well. Just 20 minutes up the road from Spring Lake. The main lakes are roughly 30 minutes up the road from Spring Lake.
Dont know about fishing for trout in this area, but definately large/small mouth bass, stripe bass, white bass, yellow perch, brim, blue gill, catfish, pickeral, crappie... ect.
Best thing to do is next time your in Walmart, get a NC Gameland book from the Sporting goods dept. (they're free), they have maps of all the Gamelands, which most are on the major or near the major bodies of water (i.e. Jordan lake, Shearon Harris, Cape Fear). That will give you an idea of where some possibilities are located for ya.
As Backlash said a little higher in this forum. Ft. Bragg is right there at spring lake. Matter of fact there are two lakes just outside of spring lake on Bragg. This will cost you an extra $25 in license fees paid at McKeller's lodge on bragg but it definately is close and worth your time if you don't mind the extra cost. A link to the bragg page is http://www.bragg.army.mil/wildlife/. Hope this is helpful.
