AKA: Waccamaw Lake, Waccamaw Reservoir

Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, black crappie, bluegill, pumpkinseed, redear sunfish, white bass, white perch and striped bass at Lake Waccamaw in North Carolina.

Probably one of the best white perch fishing lakes in North Carolina, Lake Waccamaw is under fished for virtually all fish species in the lake. This 8,900-acre lake, located in the south-east part of the state, beckons you to come enjoy the great fishing. It is a perfect lake for small craft - inflatable's, canoes, kayaks, john boats and aluminum boats fit the bill. As a result of plentiful vegetation and thriving perch and sunfish populations, bass and catfish thrive here and can grow to trophy size. With relatively clear water, most lures will attract bites. Smaller lures - crankbaits, spinners, and spinnerbaits, will attract bass, crappie, bluegill, white bass and perch. Using small sizes, you never know what will charge your lure next.
