    Good evening...Little help here please.

    I usually carry concealed down here in SC when I'm fishing. I have a SC CCHP. I want to make a trip to NC to take some buddies fishing at Harris Lake. I've only been there once, years ago. I know that it's a nuke plant lake. Does that mean that the whole property is federal land? Would I be able to open carry on the lake? I know there's a bouy string preventing you from getting too close to the plant. Is there a no weapons sign posted at the boat ramps? Thanks for your help.

    I don't know the laws about that lake but it is a privately owned lake not Federal Property. Progress Energy owns it and all the land around it unless they have sold that money pit to someone. Since it is a nuke plant there may be some Fed Regulations.
