B. Everett Jordan Lake Fishing News
The striper season on Jordan Lake typically runs from April through December with a peak in the May time frame. The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has stocked striped bass in B. Everett Jordan Reservoir since 1996 and striped bass hybrids, also known as Bodie bass long before that. Since 2000 the Commission stocks only striped bass in Jordan Lake. By stocking striped bass instead of Bodie bass, the Commission protects the native striped bass population downstream in the Cape Fear River while continuing to provide anglers an additional sport fish in Jordan Lake. Jordan Lake supports a good striped bass fishery. There are very ample opportunities for anglers who enjoy catching three- to five-pound and larger striped bass.
