The hidden gem fishing lake in Mecklenburg County! Less known than nearby Kerr and Gaston lakes, Lake Gordon is a serene and quiet spot located just off of Hwy 58, a few miles west of downtown South Hill.
This 157-acre, Department lake in Mecklenburg County, has a very good largemouth bass population. Recent sampling showed many bass over 15 inches, with a fair number of bass over 20 inches.
Lake Gordon also has good redear sunfish populations, fair crappie and chain pickerel populations, and is a very good channel catfish lake. Channel catfish are stocked in alternating years.
