 Fishing & Licenses & Guides

The state of North Carolina offers a variety of fishing including lakes, ponds, streams and rivers. The primary focus is largemouth bass fishing. There is also excellent fishing for smallmouth, crappie, striper, catfish, walleye and more.

Don't hold me to this but the way I read the Fishing License information is you can apply for the licence in four different ways and a short term 10 day license is $10.00

Considering a day of fishing in Western North Carolina? Lake Hiwassee offers some of the best fishing in our area.  Experience the thrill of hooking a 40 lb striped bass, and loading the boat with some of this area's best bass and walleye. We run guided trips 365 days a year. 


Without a doubt this is one of the best sites I have found for comprehensive fishing information. North Carolina fishing - Bass fishing - Crappie, stripers, equipment, boats, gear and vacation trip ideas for fishing in NC.
