Winter Guiding on the Tuckasegee Delayed Harvest

Posted by on December 30, 2011

Cold day on the Tuckasegee Delayed Harvest

The Tuck has been fishing really well this Winter aside from the few days that have been blown out due to heavy rain.  Anglers have had the opportunity for both float and/or wade trips with the East Fork arriving at the delayed harvest just before noon on most days.  The trout are hitting a variety of flies including:  Hot Head Marvins and other stonefly patterns, midges, most junk food patterns such as eggs and san juan worms, Griffiths Gnats, Tiny Blue Wing Olives, and various other nymphs.

Today, I had the pleasure of guiding David P. from Louisiana.  We had a decent half day on the water with 10-12 fish hooked and 6 or 7 put in the net.   I particularly enjoyed  David’s stories about fly-fishing in remote parts of Alaska.  I look forward to fishing with David again in the Spring.  David also has a rental house that is just 4-5 miles away from the delayed harvest.  If anyone is interested just give us a call and we will give you the details.

We are still running are “Winter Specials” if anyone is interested in some great winter fishing opportunities send us an email or call.  We have both wade and float trips still available.
