Do you need some type of special insurance to put your boat in at Lake Lure? I heard you had to have some type of personal injury rider since someone got hurt there several years back.

I believe you do.

I fish from the town park banks as I do not have a boat.

Caught a giant Northern hog sucker from the bank last year on a nightcrawler.

Hoping to catch some yellow perch (sun perch) but the water is prolly too low for fish to come up out of the main lake.

I'm not sure about the insurance but I'm pretty sure you need a Lake Lure permit which unless you are a resident of Lake Lure is REALLY expensive.:eek: That's the reason I've never boated there.

Yup, town permit required to drop boat in there. Little did I know..... towed the boat all the way there just to be told by the marina guy there that I couldnt use the boat unless I had a permit.

Nice area though, we ended up doin the pontoon boat tour thing and Chimney Rock thing.

Looks like a good lake to fish, runnin brook looked to have trout in it (didnt see anyone fishin though).

Thanx for the report!

I believe what a boat permit costs depends on whether you have a motorized boat or a non motorized boat and whether you use one in the winter or summer. I could be wrong.

The fish species I have found/seen or know are in Lake Lure include: flat bullhead catfish, channel catfish, flathead catfish, v-lip redhorse sucker, northern hog sucker, bluegill, largemouth bass, white bass, black crappie, yellow perch, rainbow trout, carp and smallmouth bass.

Probably a lot more in the lake but I know those species are in there.

You do not need a permit to fish from the bank at the town park which is located just past the US 64/74-A/NC 9 bridge over the Broad River/Lake Headwaters.
