TFF – Monthly Meeting (Virtual) Late Fall Coastal Fishing

This month’s meeting will be another virtual meeting on Zoom, featuring Captain John Mauser, Swansboro, North Carolina.

The North Carolina weather is cooling down, but the fishing is REALLY heating up. The Red Drum and Speckled Trout are starting to school up and the big False Albacore are headed south. This is a favorite time for many to head to the beach to fish.

This is your chance to learn about how the change in seasons affect the fishing on the coast. John will discuss the migratory patterns, fly patterns and methods to catching schooled up fish during the best time of year to chase them. I can’t wait for this presentation!!

TFF Local: Fishing Helton Creek

Helton Creek Campground

On 11/6/2021 we will be fishing the Helton Creek DH section.

There will be people there to help with fly suggestions, trout locations and other tips but this is not a guided trip. The access and wading is fairly easy and I suggest wearing felt sole wading boots.

Gear I recommend:
4-5wt fly rod
Floating line
Various trout patterns in sizes 12-18 (san juan worms, egg patterns, pheasant tail nymphs, elk hair caddis, adams, royal wulf, renegades, zugbugs, hares ear nymph, etc.)
Breathable Waders
Water bottle - STAY HYDRATED!

Wear a hat and sunscreen. Protect yourself from the sun.

Please note that the TFF portion of this event is fishing on 11/6. It is up to you whether you drive up for the day or stay the weekend. Lodging, if desired, is ON YOUR OWN. There is a campsite and there are currently 5 tent sites reserved. If you are interested in a campsite, please contact me directly and not through this Meetup.

You can bring your family if desired, but the TFF fishing event is only for those members that registered. If you have questions about what that exactly means please contact me.

The cost to tent camp is $20/night and payable to the campground. There are RV sites but you'd have to call the campground to find the prices. Again, lodging and/or camping is NOT provided through TFF but is on your own, please contact me with lodging questions.

Your RSVP to this Meetup implies agreement to this waiver; Be sure to review ahead of time:
