Lawson listed 20 types of freshwater fish in North Carolina (Lefler 1967:156). Of these, two (catfish and suckers) were identified in the faunal assemblages from the Wall and Fredricks sites. The other two species identified archaeologically (gar and sunfish) were not mentioned by Lawson.

Fishing with hooks, weirs, and with bow and arrow (on the coast) were all described by Lawson (Lefler 1967:218).
