Default Lake Hickory

Lake Hickory

Lake Hickory was created in 1927 with the completion of the Oxford Dam. The dam parallels the NC Highway 16 bridge over the Catawba River between I-40 and Taylorsville. It is 122 feet high, with an overall length of 1,200 feet. The spillway section of the dam is 550 feet long.
Lake Hickory was named after the nearby city of the same name. The lake covers almost 4,223 acres with 105 miles of shoreline. Full pond elevation is 935 feet. Lake Hickory is a reliable source of water for the nearby cities of Hickory and Longview, North Carolina.
Duke Energy provides five public access areas on the lake in cooperation with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

Talking to some guys who fish Rhodhiss Dam, they said Tuesday morning when the turbines were running there was a striper frenzy everywhere. We went out yesterday morning but the turbines didnt cut on until 1030am and of course no frenzy.
