Planning a fishing getaway to Lake Lure in North Carolina?

When researching Lake Lure fishing spots, you are going to want up-to-date information. At different times the fish are biting at different places in the lake. A number of factors all influence fishing conditions including the moon, the sun, the weather, and the time of day. Most tours begin early, around 6 or 7 a.m., and last for half a day or approximately 4 hours. This is the best time of the day to fish at Lake Lure.

Lake Lure stretches for 720 acres and is filled with cool, mountain water. This fact makes it ideal for both fishing on the lake and on surrounding streams. With a shoreline of 21 miles, it is also possible to fish right from the shore, especially during the spring season. Most days of fishing will begin in the Lake Lure Marina , a spot where you will find fishing and tackle equipment, as well as boat rentals.

Lake Lure is stocked with trout, meaning that there really isn't a bad place to fish. That being said, each angler will have his or her own favorite spot. Some prefer the deep center of the lake while others like the three long bays . There are also several small coves and islets that can be calm places for families who want to teach their kids the basics of fishing.

Taking into consideration weather conditions, local knowledge, and who wants to fish, you can choose the perfect spot for Lake Lure fishing.

What You Need to Fish

In addition to knowing where to fish, there are a few hoops to jump through before the fun begins. Remember that you will need a fishing license and, in addition, if you plan on bringing a private boat onto the lake, you will need a boating license as well (available in the town hall).

If you would rather avoid all of this paperwork, one way to do so is to hire a fishing guide . A knowledgeable guide will not only take care of all the paperwork for you, but will show you the best Lake Lure fishing spots depending on time of year you visit and other varying conditions that impact quality of fishing in different areas.

A guide will also make sure you aren't breaking any local fishing rules and regulations. There is a limit on how many fish individuals can take from the lake. For example, each person can catch no more than 5 trout per day and they can't exceed 15 centimeters in length. If you don't plan on fishing with a guide, make sure to read all the local rules and regulations because they vary depending on season, type of boat, and type of fish.
