Fast becoming "the lake" for big blue catfish, Lake Gaston has set the last three state records for blues. It is a 20,000-acre reservoir on the northern border of the state, 2 miles north of Littleton, NC. In addition to catfish, the lake has healthy populations of bass, crappie, walleye, stripers, white bass and chain pickerel. In fact, Lake Gaston served up the state record chain pickerel. Whether you want to catch a bunch of fish for a fish fry, or go in search of monster fish, Lake Gaston is a great destination for anglers. With over 350 miles of shoreline there is plenty of room for fishing from shore, or from your choice of boats, canoes and kayaks. Boat docks, creek channels and areas with aquatic vegetation are the primary targets for locating fish.
