Tuckasegee Float Trips for Fly Fishing

Posted by on May 8, 2014

It has been a busy couple of weeks here at Hookers Fly Shop and Guide Service.  Our wade trips have been really great with the lower flows on the Tuck but the floats have been the best.  Today, Clint and I guided the lower section of the delayed harvest and put our clients on close to 100 fish between three anglers.  Not a bad day on the water.  Hot flies were #8 Marvin Stoneflies, #14 Frenchies, #16 Rainbow Warriors and #16 Soft Hackles.

The smallmouth bite on the Tuckasegee is really beginning to pick up as well.  We have picked up several decent smallies in the delayed harvest over the past week.  Today, Chuck G. got the Ultimate Tuckasegee Grand Slam (Brown, Brook, Rainbow and a Smallmouth Bass).  The big brookies, rainbows, browns and smallmouth all came on a #8 Olive/Black Tungsten Marvin Stonefly.
