Driving to North Carolina next Wed.from Northern VA because my wife has some work-related events. I am taking my kayak and fishing rods (fly and spin) and plan half-day at Lake Salem (Winston-Salem) and next day at Lake Randleman.
Any tips would be appreciated by this permanent beginner kayaker and fisherman of 6 years duration.
Thanks in advance.

I live about 15 minutes from Randleman lake and try to fish there every chance I get. Here lately I have been to busy to fish. Randleman has some excellent bass fishing and the lake is in two sections divided by hwy 62. Everything north of 62 is strickly paddle power or electric trolling motor boats. Everything south of 62 is gas powered and all the rest too. It is definitely worth the trip for fisherman of all types. It has a brushy bottom so there is plenty of cover and a few snags. My fishing buddy has nick named it snaggleman. But the fishing is awsome. If you don't have a boat it's OK they have rentals fairly reasonable. You can also fish from a pier but there is no swimming or getting out on shore other than the boat ramp or the beach. An excellent lake for a nice peaceful fishing trip or just boating around. Just be sure to bring plenty of tackle and something to eat and drink because you will want to stay all day. God bless and good luck with your fishing.
