One of the main attractions to Lake James State Park is the quality fishing opportunities that can be found in the lake. Have you ever wanted to fish, but didn’t know where to start? Here is a great opportunity. Meet Maintenance Mechanic and master angler Justin Allen at the Paddy’s Creek Area East Picnic Shelter at 9 a.m. and be prepared to wet a line! All of the fishing gear will be supplied so all you need to do is show up. Since gear will be provided, participation is limited to 6. Please call 828-584-7728 to sign-up for this program.
