Lake Wylie, North Carolina

Boating, camping and fishing.

An outdoors playground on the Catawba River, Lake Wylie offers a wide variety of boating and fishing opportunities. There is something for everyone on this 12,000-acre reservoir on the southern border of the state, at Belmont, NC. This is a great place for kayak fishing and sightseeing. Thought by many to be among the top bass fisheries in the entire southeast. Beginners and weekend anglers will find healthy populations of crappie, white bass, perch and catfish, while experienced bass pros adore this expanse of bass habitat. The healthy food chain in this reservoir produces quality catches of virtually all species that inhabit the lake. There is plenty of shoreline fishing for anglers to access all around the lake. Come spend a day, or a week, fishing at Wylie Lake.
