Wake County offers anglers ample opportunity to float and fish. From the relative weekday solitude of Big Lake in Umstead State Park to the parade of people on the boardwalk at Lake Johnson, there's a body of water and a boat to rent for anybody.
Some lakes are small, but many offer excellent wildlife-viewing opportunities in addition to good fishing.
Last week, we featured Orange and Durham counties. Between the three counties, you can find more than a dozen places to rent a boat and leave the shore for fishing adventures.
