Note: A North Carolina fishing license is required in all Buncombe County rivers and lakes. Only the $4 local fishing permit fee will be waived on Saturday, May 4. All other fishing regulations apply, such as length and daily possession limits, as well as bait and tackle restrictions.
Have you ever felt the excitement of watching your bobber suddenly jiggle, then dive out of sight? Or feeling the tap-tap-tap of a bass as it tastes the worm on the end of your line? If you are new to the sport of fishing, and not sure if you will enjoy it, a great opportunity awaits you.
To give anglers a better chance of catching fish, Lake Julian is well stocked with an abundance of bass, catfish, brim, crappie and imported tilapia. The lake's new dock will also be dedicated at 11:00 in the morning (Rock the Dock).
