Striper Fishing on Lake Hickory
My husband, David, went fishing last week and caught this 11# striper on Lake Hickory. Quoting NC Sportsmen, " Lake Hickory is bouncing back from a tough 2013, with striped bass being landed across the lake thanks to a cool spring and what looks like a mild beginning to summer. and the rainfall has returned to a normal level. ....water temperatures are floating between 65 and 75 degrees. With outflows from Rhodhiss Dam upstream bringing cold water from the bottom of that lake into Hickory, anglers should fish the 4-mile stretch upstream from the US 321 bridge, especially the stretch upstream from a railroad bridge that crosses the lake. The water temperature in that section of the lake has been around 65 degrees."
So get out there and start fishing! If you need a place on the lake, call Nika at 828-312-0013.
