Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, redbreast sunfish, white bass and muskie at Cheoah Lake in North Carolina.
Cheoah Lake, NC

Located below Fontana Dam, Cheoah Lake is a 640-acre, cold-water fishery with several species of trout. One boat ramp and a fishing pier are open to the public on the upper end of the lake. It is located on the western border of the state, at Tapaco. This wandering river lake is 29 miles long and has over 200 miles of shoreline. Because it is remote, and gets little fishing pressure, the fishing can often be very good for both quantity and quality. Trout are the main attraction, but the lake also supports populations of bass, sunfish and muskie.
