Guided Fly Fishing on the Tuckasegee River

Posted by on May 5, 2012

It has been a busy week at Hookers Fly Shop and Guide Service.  The weather has been wonderful and the fishing has been fantastic.  Tim Sheehan, started the week out with a 3/4 day trip for two on the Tuckasegee Delayed Harvest.  He reported a fairly productive day but the water was a little high and hard to wade in some areas.

Clint Holcomb and I have also been out several times this week, with trips on the Tuckasegee River and the West Fork of the Pigeon.   Yesterday, we guided a two boat, 3/4 day float for a great group of guys who all grew up here in the Sylva area.  We put in at the Hwy 107 bridge and quickly got into some fish.  Each boat brought around 20-30 fish to the net including one grand slam.  Hot flies of the day were #8 Olive Hot Head Marvins with #14 Rainbow Warrior droppers and #8 Brown Hot Head Marvins with #14 Rainbow Prince droppers.  #8 Olive and Black Wooly Buggers were pretty hot too.

Today, I guided Scott and Chris from Nashville, TN and Raleigh, NC on a half day wade on the Tuck.  The day started off overcast with some light showers.  There was a midge and a sporadic Little Yellow Stonefly hatch in the early-mid morning.  Scott nymph fished all day and picked up over 20 fish on #8 Olive and Black Hot Head Marvins with a #14 Rainbow Warrior dropper.  Chris had a lot of success early in the morning with a #8 Olive Wooly Bugger.  He switched over to a #12 Tungsten Flashabou Nymph with a #16 Just Add Water dropper and picked up several nice rainbows and a few decent brook trout.  Chris also picked up a few fish on a #14 Para Adams around mid day.  Overall it has been a fantastic week on the water with some great company and new friends.  If you are interested in a guided wade or float trip on the Tuckasegee River feel free to send us an email or call.  We are currently floating for Trout and Smallmouth Bass on both the Lower Tuckasegee and the Little Tennessee.  hookersflyshop@yahoo.com   828-587-HOOK
