I will be able to get on the water. This rainy season has dramatically reduced the number of trips to the river I have made this year. I typically fish on Friday afternoons, but this year it seems as if all the major rains come thru on Thursdays and blow the streams out for Friday and Saturday.
If everything works out, I will try to make the trip over to NC next Monday or Tuesday and try for some lake run trout and steelhead. Hopefully it will not be too crowded. This will be a first for me, but I have been wanting to try it for a long time. Not a chance at getting on the tailwaters in the area, as most of them are running all generators and some are even sluicing. I think I heard that Appalachia is actually spilling, I can't imagine that is doing much good for the fish population downstream. That was once a great tailwater, just as recently as 4 years ago. But something happened once we entered into our drought, and that river just hasn't been the same since.
I hope everyone out there has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Until next time, Tight Lines & God Bless.
