Fly Fishing Float Trips in Western North Carolina

Posted by on April 5, 2012

Nice Tuckasegee Brook Trout

Today, I guided Hookers Fly Shop repeat client Jeff K. from Chapel Hill, NC.  We did a 3/4 day float trip on the Delayed Harvest section of the Tuckasegee River.  Jeff picked up several fish in the riffles just below the island on South River Rd..  The big fish of the day, a 16-17″ brook trout was taken in a deeper run several hundred yards below the island.  Jeff ended up getting another big brook, several rainbows, one brown and two smallies.

Hot flies of the day were a #6 Light Olive Wooly Bugger with a #12 Rainbow Prince trailer tied about 10″ behind.  Other hot flies were #8 Hot Head Marvins and #12-14 Rubberleg Rainbow Prince Nymphs.

The Tuck DH also received the April stocking today so the river has received close to 40,000 trout since the October stocking.  The river will get one more stocking in May and then open up to harvest on the first Saturday of June.
