    At the lillington boat ramp, I always would put a jon boat in and fish the rapids just below the ramp about 1/2 mile or so just before the golf course. My best luck was fishing corks with live bream before and after the rapids. Usually, in the heat of the summer when the o2 levels are alot lower in the water, you catch alot of smaller ones 2-15lb range. The lillington boat ramp really gets hammered with fishing pressure, it's always nice to get some private access either up or down river from lillington. There is some really great fishing in the right holes. good luck too ya
