Lake Tillery stretches across 5,263 acres of territory in the Uwharrie Lakes region of North Carolina.

Lake Tillery is a popular destination for both experienced and novice anglers, since it hosts a variety of hunting areas and fish species. You’ll find largemouth, striped, and white bass in addition to red ear sunfish, bluegill, and channel catfish. And not only do you have your pick of fish, but you can either hunt them via beach, boat, or fishing pier. Once you’ve found your rhythm with the reel, enter into any of Lake Tillery’s annual fishing tournaments and show off your skills.
