    Are there Blues in Jordan Lake? I haven't heard much about it. Also, Are there any Blues in Sherron Harris? I am located just south of Sanford so I am pretty close to them both and am just wondering if there are any catting to offer there. I have fished S.H. for other fish but have only caught Bullheads in S.H.

    Jordan = Channel Catfish, White Catfish and Brown Bullheads
    Harris = Channel Catfish, White Catfish and Brown Bullheads

    People have put Blues and Flatheads in the lakes to some degree it has been said. However, if you go fishing for Blues and Flats on those lakes, you will get skunked on every trip (regardless of other opinions you may get).

    I agree I have caught many small channels on jordan and although there are some blues I haven't seen anything of size.

    if you want cats stay in the rivers....haw...cape fear...although the blues are few and far between in there until you get below buckhorn...but plenty of flats and channels.....

    good luck!!!

    This quote may start an argument, but not with anyone who's ever done much fishing at Harris or Jordan.

    How 'bout Falls of the Neuse? Anyone ever caught a blue or flathead there? I certainly have not.

    i have caught blues in jordan, but never anything above a pound or two, catch them crappie fishing sometimes, if there are small ones there are bound to be some decent ones

    I'm talking about the reservoir, has anyone ever caught a blue or flathead from Falls of the Neuse Reservoir? I have not. I did read an article in a magazine once where they had quoted a guide saying he had caught blues and flatheads there. Is there anyone here who has personally caught either?

    Howdy Sean,
    I fish Jordan fairly heavily, and have to agree with the consensus: not many Blues, but good channels. Never caught one in Harris either.
