The man-made High Rock Lake is situated between Davidson and Rowan County serving as a county boundary. Recently, the lake has become a destination for those seeking a quieter living environment and friendly neighbors.
It is the second largest lake in the state. Despite the lake being man-made in the late 1920s, it houses sanctuaries of amazing wildlife and it is a well-known fishing lake for largemouth, white and striped bass, black crappie, white crappie, catfish (blue, channel and flathead), and bluegill.
Recently, I had the pleasure of taking a private tour with local expert and lake resident, Paula Noonan of Lakefront Properties and More, who guided me to two very different “corners” of the lake.
