Just moved here from Kansas City about 3 months ago. I currently live in Apex and have been to Jordan, Falls, Harris, and enjoy all 3. But there is one thing I miss the most from the Midwest, is Walleye fishing. I researched NC parks website to see what lakes stock walleye, but just want to hear from anglers personal experience, what my best options are for walleye lakes or reservoirs?

One of the best walleye spots that I have fished anywhere other than the New River is in my old stomping grounds in Patrick County VA. Phillpot Resevoir is loaded with walleye and catching them at times can be simple. Most of the bigger ones are caught while trolling,but I have caught some nice ones fishing in the mornings and evenings around rock ledges or where streams flow into the lake by just using nightcrawlers fished close to the bottom. The biggest one I ever caught though was on a small minnow fishing in a sunken pine tree about six feet deep.I was fishing for crappie and all of a sudden my rod was almost jerked from my hand,I set the hook and a few minutes later I landed one that weighed 8lbs 4ozs.

Thanks for all the info, I'll be spending more time fishing now rather then wondering around looking for spots. The new river and Lake Gaston will be my first targets.
