I had a good buddy of mine catch a whopper of a walleye in Hickory 15 years ago.

There's articles somewhere from many years ago where the State rounded up a bunch of them during shock surveys. A lot in the Gunpowder area.

Edit: Read the article;

Yep, that's where they were. Just upstream from the mouth of Gunpowder. We used to fish the mouth of Gunpowder for catfish as well.

I used to catch walleye up north all the time, in NY and Canada. Seeing those eyes light up at night is kinda creepy, but a lot of fun. If you're lucky enough to catch one and don't plan on keeping it, keep those fingers away from the gills!

If, on the other hand, you plan on keeping it....salt, pepper, and cracker crumbs only. mmmm

Folks get them in Buggs quite a bit, Gaston has a good stock of them also(actually stocked by fish and game). Any lake that has cool feeders or a dam above it can have walleye. Probably won't spawn but a few usually wash downstream every year.
