Fontana Marina. Fontana Dam, NC - Dock master Ronnie Crisp and Captain Danny Williams report the lake action is still hot on Fontana Lake this spring.
Both Small and Large Mouth Bass are tearing up crank baits and minnows in the top water. The top water lures are great bait for some late evening action! Trout are also making an appearance in the shallow waters and minnows are the bait of choice for these guys. Walleye are on the move up as well. You will find them in the shallow waters, and they deliver some thrilling fishing action as well as an exceptional meal!
Come on out and enjoy the warmer weather! Lake conditions are perfect for daytime or nighttime fishing with easy access to the stream heads along the southern shores of the national park. The Marina Store is fully stocked with bait and tackle.
