Neuse River

I have only been here once, but Terry swears that the fishing is good. The canoe ramp is about 300 meters downstream from the Dam. We can walk or bike down the walking trail to several spots and we should be able to wade. I am bringing poppers and some wooly buggers, but I would appreciate input from you locals. Bring water and snacks...

    The 3.5 inches of rain we got yesterday is quickly filling Falls Lake. The Corps of Engineers responded by opening up the Service Gates on the Neuse River today. At noon the flow went from a manageable 175 cfs to 350cfs. At 4pm, the flow is at 700 cfs and still rising. Tomorrow will not be a good fly fishing day on the upper Neuse River.

    I do a lot of kayak fishing down the Neuse from that area. Poppers work very well in the creek inlets where there is not a lot of turbulent water. Clousers and other streamers are working for bass and even catfish along the banks around 2-4 ft of water. Some of the fish are still spawning and laying on their beds so it might sometimes be hard to entice them but keep at it and they will eventually bite. I just recently joined TFF and hope to get out there soon to catch some big ones with you guys.

    Wish I could join you but I'll be in Wilmington. Couple of suggestions for y'all though. First, check the water levels coming out of the damn before you head there. They have been releasing a lot of water for a while now, and it's really not wadeable after 300 fps coming out of the damn. As far as flies go, I have caught tons of good sized panfish on a simple betts popper and a copper john dropper. They love things with legs! Wooly buggers and streamers work well for the bass too. You can even toss some gar flies out there if you have any, just look for them surfacing to fill their air bladders and toss in front of them. Hope you guys slay em! Tight lines!
