  • William B. Umstead State Park: This state park has three different lakes to choose from. Spend the entire day here and bounce from lake to lake to lake. Popular catches include bass, bluegill, and crappie.
  • Lake Crabtree County Park: At this 520-acre lake, catch-and-release fishing is what takes place on the water. It makes for a serene day, and who knows – maybe you’ll catch the same fish twice!
  • Bass Lake Park and Retreat Center: Bank fishing is free at this Holly Springs location. Guided bass fishing tours are an option as well, as this lake offers some of the best bass fishing there is!
