Graham/Mebane Lake, formerly known as Quaker Lake was expanded from 150 acres to ite present size of 650 acres in 1994. The lake now serves as a raw water source for the cities of Graham and Mebane. The lake serves as a recreation source for the citizens of the area offering skiing, bank fishing and sport fishing.
The 1994 Expansion of the lake provided ample acreage to offer a separate water and jet ski area. The separate area allows for a safe skiing environment while keeping prime fishing areas free of passing boat traffic.
The Graham/Mebane Lake has been named one of the top ten fishing lakes in North Carolina. This distinction is due in large part to the lake's expansion that created productive fishing areas. Also contributing to the fish population was the lake involvement in the Wildlife Commission's Management program. The lake supports a thriving largemouth bass population consistently producing trophy bass with the lake record weighing 12 pounds. Other species found at the lake include carp and brim. Fish attractors were installed near prime fishing spots in 2000, allowing those citizens without a boat to enjoy fishing.
