The Tuckasegee has been on fire since the November stocking on Wed. and Thurs. of this week. Expect large crowds for the next week or so. Fish are holding in large pods mostly near the banks where they were stocked. For the Duke Energy generation schedule you can click the Duke Energy link, which is also on our home page.
Today, I guided a great group of guys from the Charlotte area. They brought somewhere around 50 fish to the net including a grand slam and a double (two fish on the same line). Most fish were taken on a #8 Hot Head Marvin and #10 Y2K setup. With the overcast rainy morning there were plenty of fish rising to tiny Blue Wing Olives.
Tomorrow, we will be guiding 15 scouts from a local Boy Scout Troop. The boys will be attempting to earn their fly fishing merit badges.
