Tuckasegee Fly Fishing Float Trips

Posted by on January 11, 2015

Guided fly fishing float trips on the Tuckasegee River.

The past two days Miller and I guided float trips for repeat client Joe R. and sons from Georgia.  Both days were extremely cold, luckily we were in the boat so we stayed fairly warm.

Lunch Time on the Tuck!

The first day was the slowest and coldest of the two days and the water was running really high. We had some success early in the morning before the East Fork hit then it completely shut down.  The second day was a different story.  As soon as we hit the water we were putting fish in the net including some decent rainbows and the big Brookie pictured below.

When the East Fork hit mid day on the second day we did see the action slow down for an hour or so.  After lunch the guys were back to putting fish in the net with some nice rainbows and several doubles.   Overall a fantastic couple of days on the water with some great company.  The hot flies for the trip were #8 and #10 Tungsten BH Hot Head Marvins with Pink and Yellow Micro Egg Droppers.  Most of the fish came on the Hot Head Marvins.   To order these hot flies please visit our Online Store page.
