Description: 

Lake Phelps is North Carolina's second largest natural lake. It is located in Washington County on the Albemarle-Pamlico Peninsula located between the Albemarle Sound and the Pamlico Sound. An Indian dugout canoe was found in the lake dating back nearly 4,400 years. Other artifiacts have been found around the area dating as early as 8,000 B.C.

Its origin has long puzzled scientists. Some say that its origin is underground springs, wave action, wind, a meteor, glacial activity or a peat burn. It is more or less a round shape.

Fishing Description: 

The lake provides excellent shoreline bass fishing as well as good fishing for yellow perch and assorted sunfish.

Fishing Tips, Tactics, How-To info: 

April, May, October and November are the most productive times to fish Lake Phelps. Most of the fishing is done along the shoreline in areas dominated with "structure" such as flooded woodlands, marsh grass fringes, and lily pads. Many fishermen prefer anchoring their boats in these productive areas.
