    High Rock Lake, NC

    I may have a job opportunity in North Carolina. I would have a sales territory of Greensboro to Winston/Salem and surrounding areas. The company itself is located near Charlotte. I would like to know about High Rock Lake since it seems to be centerally located for possibly living on. Can anyone tell me if it is a good lake? Like clean, sand or mud bottom, busy, amount of level variation, or anything else good or bad. Also any recommendation of other lakes in this area. I would sure appreciate it. Thanks.

    Nasty, trashy water. Part of the Yadkin River chain. Live closer to Charlotte. More going on and you have Lake Norman which is part of the Catawba River chain, which is a better chain.

    About 5 years ago, the area experienced a severe drought and this lake was drained almost completely. My understanding is that every dock on the lake was high and dry. And, the Carolina's are experiencing another drought situation right now - that's not to say they'll drain the lake again but if they did it once, they could possibly do it again.

    Nasty drought here on the east side of NC. Our local river has turned into a 10ft wide creek that is only several feet deep.. I'll throw some pics up in the General discussion board.

    Another yuck for High Rock Lake as far as riding skis goes.

    Green grass has overtaken the High Rock Lake bed at Hickory Point. Alcoa.com reporteed the lake level at 6.4 feet below full Friday heading into the Labor Day weekend. Donnie Roberts/The Dispatch
