Lake Norman fishermen could soon have a new hot spot for dropping their lines.
Tons of rock were hauled by barge into the lake off the Kiser Island peninsula near Little Creek on Thursday and dumped, creating the lake’s newest artificial reef. It was the second such reef built since January, and the sixth in three years, said Tim Gestwicki, CEO of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation.
