Over 300 miles of shoreline entice fishing enthusiasts to wet a line most every where you look. Major fishing access areas for fishing from the bank include C. Alex Harvin Landing Pier, Rimini Landing Pier, Taw Caw Creek Park Pier and Taw Caw Creek Park Bank. Sixteen boat launch ramps provide easy access for pleasure boats, pontoons, fishing boats and sailboats. Canoes and kayaks can be portaged from landings and fishing access areas. Over a dozen fish attractors are located around the lake.
