AKA: Shearon Harris Reservoir, Shearon Harris Lake

Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, blue catfish, black crappie, bluegill, white bass, white perch and northern pike at Harris Lake in North Carolina.

With 140 miles of shoreline and an average depth of less than 20 feet, Shearon Harris Lake gets very little notoriety. However, those who fish this 4,100-acre reservoir in the northeast part of the state are rewarded with catches worthy of note. The lake contains a healthy population of bass, catfish, crappie, sunfish, white bass and northern pike. The primary targets here are bass and crappie. Bass over 10 pounds and crappie over 2 pounds swim in this lake. Nutrient-rich water with aquatic vegetation for cover makes this a very healthy fishery. Bring everything you need for your trip as the lake has little or no services for boating, fishing or camping. There are public boat ramps for easy launching.
