Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, black crappie, bluegill, pumpkinseed sunfish, redear sunfish, warmouth, white perch, yellow perch and bowfin at Lake Mattamuskeet in North Carolina.
Lake Mattamuskeet, NC

Known as much for crabbing as it is for fishing, Lake Mattamuskeet is a unique fishery. This 40,000-acre reservoir near the eastern edge of the state, at Fairfield, NC is a national wildlife refuge. The lake is quite shallow in many areas. A series of canals off the lake proper are deeper than the majority of the lake. These canals provide spawning areas during spring and can be the most productive areas to fish during this season. The main targets here are black crappie, channel catfish, white perch and largemouth bass. Much of the shoreline is accessible for fishing from the bank. Kayaks and canoes are a popular way to navigate these waters and fish some of the shallower areas.
