Guided Fly Fishing on the Tuckasegee River Delayed Harvest

Posted by on April 13, 2012

Tuckasegee Float Trip

It has been really busy the past few days here at Hookers Fly Shop.  Clint, Tim and I have all had trips out this week.  On Wed. I did a 3/4 day float with a couple from Montana.  The day was pretty chilly with a high only in the upper 50s, and the wind was howling all day.  We brought some decent rainbows and brookies to the boat.   Hot flies were #6-#8 Black and Olive  Conehead Buggers with a #12 Prince Nymph trailer.  Most fish were taken on the Prince Nymph.  Several fish were also picked up on #8 Black/Olive Hot Head Marvins.

Yesterday, Tim had a full day wade with couple from Ohio.  Tim reports that it was a fairly productive day with plenty of fish brought to the net including a couple of big rainbows and brook trout.  Hot flies were Caddis Pupa and Hot Head Marvins.  Several fish were taken on the swing with the #8 Hot Head Marvins.

Today, Clint had a full day trip with Chad P. from Asheville, NC who was working on his senior project (Fly Fishing).  Clint reports a really productive day with close to 30 fish brought to the net including several big brook trout and an 18 inch Brown.  Hot flies were #8 Black/Olive Hot Head Marvins, Rainbow Prince Nymphs, Rainbow Warriors and Lucent Bead Lightning Bugs.

Today, I had the pleasure of guiding Chase and Ashton from the eastern part North Carolina.  This was Chase and Ashton’s first trip to the area and first time fly fishing for trout.  Chase ended up bringing 7 or 8 trout to the net including a nice 15-16 inch brook trout.  Ashton had several long distance releases and landed one big rainbow and one beautiful wild brown trout.  A few fish were taken  Hot Head Marvins and most fish were taken on a #8 Rainbow Flashabou Streamer with a #12 B.H. Prince Nymph trailer.

Now is the time to fish the Tuckasegee River.  With the April stocking, The Tuck has had close to 40,000 fish released in the Delayed Harvest section.  That is close to 8,000 fish per mile.    If you are interested in a wade or float trip on this section of river contact us.  The Tuckasegee River is Hookers Fly Shop’s home waters and our guides are on these waters 200+ days a year.  Let us take you on your next fly fishing adventure.
