Lake Hickory - The Oxford
Dam was completed in 1927, forming 4,223 acre Lake Hickory. With
105 miles of hilly shoreline, Lake Hickory is primarily a river
channel type lake, with several major feeder creeks, and larger
open areas on the south end close to the Oxford dam. The northern
limit of Lake Hickory is the Rhodhiss Dam , which forms Lake Rhodhiss.

of striper, largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish. Trophy
stripers up to 30 pounds, and large bass are relatively common
at Lake Hickory.
The primary forage is large gizzard and threadfin shad, plus pan
