Fly Fishing Float Trips on the Tuckasegee River

Posted by on March 16, 2014

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of guiding new clients Steve and David on a 3/4 day float trip on the Tuckasegee Delayed Harvest.  After hitting the river we soon got into some fish just below the Hwy 107 bridge, which marks the beginning of the delayed harvest section.  Steve was the first to get the Tuckasegee Grand Slam and did so on his first three fish of the day.  Dave followed with a Tuck slam of his own about half way through the trip.  Both Steve and Dave also brought some big Rainbows and Brookies  to the boat and Steve landed a beautiful wild brown trout.

Most fish were taken on a #8 or #10 Hot Head Marvins with a #12 Yellow Sucker Spawn droppers.  Steve landed the big brookie pictured above on a #6 Black Conehead Wooly Bugger.  The guys put well over 50 fish in the net for the day.  Not a bad day on the water here in beautiful Western North Carolina.
