COOLEEMEE  – It’s billed as “the best catfish you ever ate.”

And on Saturday, the fryers will be hot as the annual Bullhole Catfish Fry is held at RiverPark at Cooleemee Falls.

Proceeds go to the upkeep of the park along the South Yadkin River. The park is off of Erwin Temple Church Road in Rowan County. Take NC 801 from Cooleemee into Rowan, take the first right onto Needmore Road and then right onto Erwin Temple.

Meals will include catfish, slaw, fries, hush puppies, a drink and dessert.

While there, take the short hike through the woods to the river, where the South Yadkin flows over a dam to the area known as The Bullhole.
