 Western North Carolina is blessed with an number of water man-made deep-water lakes. Naturally occurring large lakes are not found in the mountains, and the ones that are in place now are all man made, typically by damming up valleys and coves. It is beyond the scope of this book to cover all of the lakes in the mountains and only some of the major more popular ones are presented.
