Hey, glad you have joined us. I am in Hickory and have spent a little time chasin LMB on Hickory and Rhodhiss. I have fished Johns some, but I have never spent any time on the Catawba any farther up. I have fished James a few times trying for smallies but never had any luck. I really hope that you enjoy the site. Send me a PM when you get enough posts in maybe we can do some fishing and I can pick your brain for Catawba and James info. Do you ever fish the ponds at the Prison?

Darrell is a good fella, and a good resource for the Hickory / Rodhiss area. I agree, you have joined the best online fishing community in the area, in my opinion. Welcome to NCAngler!

fishmanj, the Catawba chain has most of your freshwater fishes. Starting in the mountains with James you have smallies LMB, walleye, pike and musky. This info is mostly according to rumors that I have heard because James has not been very forthcoming to me. The last lake on the chain in NC is Wylie more of your typical Peidmont Lake. There area Hybrids, stripers, cats etc. in the lakes in between. Although the Catawba chain has some good fishing if I were traveling from the coast in search of LMB I would stop at Harris, Falls, Jordan or one of the Yadkin Lakes to look for them.

But if you do "hitch a ride" sometime let me know and if I am off, I will meet you at one of the landings with the boat and we'll see what we can find.
