Alexander County Coroner Harold McNelly said 41-year-old Anthony Dodd drowned while fishing with his 11-year-old stepdaughter.
The two were walking through 10 to 12 feet of water at the time, trying to cross a drainage ditch between Miller City and Cairo.
Dodd's stepdaughter made it to shore and walked two miles for help.
