Fishing in Lake Norman

Did you know that North Carolina has an "Inland Sea?" With more than 500 miles of shoreline, Lake Norman has truly earned this nickname! Add excellent fishing opportunities on top of it and Lake Norman should be your next angling adventure. If you decide to visit this freshwater heaven, check out some of the Lake Norman fishing charters, too. Who better than a local guide to show you around?

With acres of water, comes a multitude of trophy catches as well. Lake Norman is home to Largemouth, Smallmouth, Spotted, and White Bass. The most prominent fish, however, are Striped Bass. There are even many tournaments in their honor! Apart from these leading stars, you can also expect to stumble on Perch, Crappie, Bluegill, and Catfish.

The good news is that you can go after these beauties any time of the year. Even though Lake Norman is a year-round fishery, spring and fall prove to be more prolific. This is when the spawning season is in full swing and your odds of landing an impressive specimen are higher. The lake is big and is brimming with life, so you'll need a full day trip to explore it properly!

As the lake spans four counties, there are numerous departure points for all types of fishing. Be it a boat, kayak, shore, or pier angling – Lake Norman State Park and Blythe Landing are fully equipped for each fishing approach. If you're visiting the lake for the first time, your best bet is a certified operator. Lake Norman fishing charters are plentiful in Mooresville and Sherrills Ford.

Rules & Regulations

Before you cast your line in these waters, make sure you are familiar with the rules and regulations surrounding your hunt. First and foremost, you'll need a valid fishing license. Secondly, don't forget to pay attention to bag and size limits. You can keep your catch as long as it's in accordance with the latest restrictions.

Lake Norman Fishing Seasons

January

While this is one of the coldest months of the year, fishing doesn’t come to a halt. Cast your line in the deeper waters to catch an array of Bass species, as well as Crappie around rocks and pilings.

February

In February, you’ll find your catch where the baitfish are, as well as close to hot water discharge channels – these guys want to stay warm as well. Perch, Catfish, Bass, and Crappie are all out there.

March

It’s still quite cold on the water, but don’t let that stop you. Put on some layers and go fishing for Hybrid, Spotted, and Largemouth Bass. Pole fishing for Crappie is another tempting option.

April
As spring comes knocking, catching your limit of fish on Lake Norman becomes the norm. The Bass spawn season is in full swing, and Crappie and Spotted Bass are very popular.
May

In May, it’s all about that Bass! Schools of these hard-fighting fish are shallows, and when you find them, chances are you’ll get your limit quickly. Just make sure you’re super stealthy.

June

It’s the end of the Crappie spawning season, which means they’ll be moving to deep waters to steer clear from the heat, and that’s where you’ll find them. Bass are very hungry and even more aggressive.

July

If you’ve come to the lake to target Bass, they’ll be in the comfort of the cool, deep waters, so fish for them just after sunrise and sunset. Perch and Bream love these warm days.

August

You can still find plenty of Bass, as long as there isn’t too much sun glare on the water. Catfish are hungry all the time, including the night, so you can hook a big one. The same goes for Perch.

September

With the slow turn of the weather come Bass who relish in colder water temperatures. There’s a Walmart FLW Tournament going on mid-month, and throughout September, Hybrid, Spotted, and Largemouth Bass are lively.

October

Hybrid Bass love the fall temperatures, and their cousins, Largemouth and Spotted Bass are also very hungry. Perch fishing is a-go, and you can find more and more Crappie out there.

November

Winter is approaching, which means it’s good time to target Crappie, which is the ultimate November fish. Largemouth and Hybrid Bass are also biting left and right.

December

Don’t let the cold scare you off – fishing fun is nowhere close to being over. Whether it’s White Perch, Spotted, or Hybrid Bass, there’s plenty to do on Lake Norman. Just dress warmly and fish on!
