Detail on Lakes, Directions and Trip Checklist

Jordan Lake


Jordan Lake

Apex NC

(We normally meet at Wilsonville Exxon/Country Store - See Meeting Places below)

Sitting in the boat, watching the rods dance on the water and listening to the ripples go across the lake, you see it, the rod get tugged and dips in the water, CATCH IT, THAT'S A CRAPPIE!

Boat ramps are easily accessible for lake entry and 14000 acres of lake, with it's many coves and outlets, every trip is an ADVENTURE FOR ALL.

FYI: There is a fish limit on Jordan of 20 per fisherman; Example: 3 fishermen on the boat, 60 fish maximum to take at end of trip;  We also ask that if you are not going to eat the fish, you consider returning them to the lake for future fishermen to enjoy;
