Lake Mattamuskeet has a rich history of fishing and hunting, especially hunting waterfowl. The lake is a destination many migratory waterfowl species winter at located within the Atlantic Flyway (http://www.mattamuskeet.org/history/). It’s close proximity to the coast and the 40,000 acres lake has created a habitat that has attracted wildlife for centuries and is owned by the State of North Carolina. The lake contributes to much of the Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge.
“In the winter months, thousands of Tundra Swans, Canada and Snow Geese, pintails, black ducks, and mallards are seen on the lake, as well as less numerous species of waterfowl. Osprey nest in low Cypress trees near the water’s edge, and it is not unusual to see a Bald Eagle circling overhead or resting in a tree a safe distance from human traffic. Of the 800 species mentioned above, there are more than 200 species of birds around Lake Mattamuskeet for part or all of each year.” – (http://www.mattamuskeet.org/refuge/mnw_refuge.htm).
