  • Lake Wateree Catfishing

    John Terry of Gastonia, NC lives 10 minutes from Lake Wylie, but he prefers to do his fishing at Lake Wateree, and usually uses the Lake Wateree State Park landing to launch his boat.

    Terry spent Saturday, April 21 fishing on Wateree, and caught about 15 catfish in the 15-20 pound range, and landed a 39-pounder as well. Terry was using cut bait on the bottom and was fishing while anchored down. Most of the fish were caught between June Creek and the State Park.

    Terry is looking forward to the May 12 catfish tournament being held by Catawba Catfish Club (
