Lake Norman

Lake Norman - The largest freshwater lake situated solely in NC, Lake Norman is composed of 32,510 surface acres and 52 miles of shoreline. Lake Norman began filling in 1963 upon completion of the Cowans Ford Dam. It is 34 miles long with a maximum depth of 130 ft. The northern limit for Lake Norman is the Lookout Shoals dam which forms Lookout Shoals Lake. Due to it's size, Lake Norman has a high retention time. Although water flow is significant during normal conditions, it still takes months for water to travel through the lake. However, Lake Norman supports large populations of forage and game fish species. The primary forage is threadfin shad, blue back herring, gizzard shad and pan fishes. Game fishes include striper, largemouth bass, spotted bass, blue catfish, flathead catfish, channel catfish, crappie, white perch, bream and other pan fish. Lake Norman is known for producing quantity catches of these fishes although trophy catfish, stripers, and bass are not uncommon.
