I’ve been on the water 5 of the last 6 days and enjoyed nearly every minute of it. From floating the Catawba on Monday with Craig and Dale to ending the week on the Tuck with Ted, it’s been a good week.
Craig and Dale were lots of fun to fish with on Monday. We laughed and had a good time all day long and caught some nice fish to top it off. Had recreation flow to start the day and then around 2 pm the 1 wheel generation caught up with us and we switched over to the Catawba Buggers.
Gerry and I spent the day on Wilson Creek early in the week and boy was it windy! It was so windy….. well I’ll leave the jokes alone and stick to the fishing. We did well flopping (really couldn’t cast with all the wind) a wooly bugger over and working it downstream.
Did a little back country fishing with Jim on Wednesday. Lots of fun but tough on my legs and I’m sure he was a bit sore also….. at least I hope I was the only one a little sore. Our Wilson Creek Caddis and Stimulators did the trick.
Due to a re-schedule I had Thursday off so I worked in the shop and got ready for my Friday and Saturday trips. Headed out early Friday for the trek across western NC to Dillsboro to pick up my client at the Dillsboro Inn Bed and Breakfast. Ted and I floated the afternoon back towards the old dam at Dillsboro. Waited until 12:30 to put in since the generation arrived at Webster around 12:15. Caught several fish on ….. yep you guessed it the Catawba Bugger. Wade fished for a half day with Ted this morning and the fishing was a bit tougher. Still managed a few fish but was hoping for more.
Overall a great week on the water but I need to sit down at the vise and stock my boxes back up. Blew up the bladder in my raft floor but have it out and ready to ship to Idaho to be repaired. Luckily had access to a spare bladder so my boat is back ready to fish.
Few openings remain for this week, give us a call or book on-line as soon as possible to secure your date.
