Healthy populations of bass, crappie and perch reside in Lake Tillery, a 5,200-acre lake located in the central part of the state, at Norwood, NC. However one of the biggest draws to fishermen are the giant blue catfish that swim in this reservoir. Worms, shrimp and cut bait are some of the favorite baits for catfish fishing in Lake Tillery. Fat crappie and plentiful sunfish make this a lake for the whole family where everyone can enjoy the "catching"! Two marinas and a boat rental location offer everything you need for boating and water sport activities. Lots of shoreline miles lined with trees and docks make excellent places to cast a lure. Fishing from shore is popular, with easy access all around the lake.
