Tournament Bass Fishing On Fontana Lake

With more than 240 miles of shoreline along its 30 mile length, Fontana Lake is a prized destination for the hook and line crowd looking to up their game with large and small mouth bass action.

Fontana Village Resort and Marina is here to help you get on the water with everything you need for your next trip. From slips and boats to equipment and fuel for you and your boat, the only thing we leave up to you is reeling them in.

Fontana Village Resort, with Fontana Marina and Ranger Boats, is proud to sponsor the Fontana Spring Bass Classic tourney each Spring that brings anglers from everywhere in the southeast to test their skills against these mountain lake lunkers. It’s the best fishing around for an early North Carolina mountain vacation.

Fontana Village has also been a location for the Heartland Anglers Tournament series. The series is held at premiere locations throughout the southeast beginning in January. Call us today at 828.498.2129 to see what tournaments are coming up and how the fish are biting.
