I go to Blue Ridge Reservoir. Its about 25 miles north of Strawberry. Straight up the Beeline (Route 87). 5 Miles passed Clint's Well on the right is the turnoff. It is well marked.

Beautiful place!

There are lots of places to fish on the rim. I've only been to "knoll lake" but I really liked it:

We catch fish at Blue Ridge, but you need to get there early. You need a Trout stamp to fish there.

My brother was catching them with a fly-fishing rod so it wasn't deep at all.

Here is a great resource for fishing spots all around the state. Its a cool interactive map. It has this Blue Ridge Res on it, too. Just hover on the name of the fishing hole on the left and it identifies it on the map to the right. Zoom, switch to google maps, GPS coords, pictures, depth, size, etc... Good stuff right here. Have a great time.
