Howell Woods offers over five ponds of various sizes plus access to the Neuse River and Hannah and Mill Creeks for recreational fishing. Two of the ponds are
stocked with catfish and/or hybrid sunfish while the other ponds are "naturally"
stocked by seasonal floods. Fishing platforms on Savannah Pond and Lone pine Pond were installed in 2006. Range Pond and Ft. Island Pond will have similar platforms constructed in 2007.
A valid North Carolina fishing license
and prior reservations are required to fish on the property. Special
keep/release and bait restrictions apply to fishing on the property all of which
are explained upon check in.
Small man-made ponds and natural waterways with bank fishing or small,
electric powered motor boats are the venues and methods of fishing at Howell
