One of my wife’s friend came into town for a wedding this weekend. So we braved the cold weather and headed out to the Tuckaseegee for some wade trout fishing. Right from the get go, we managed to catch a few trout to keep below the delayed harvest section of the river where it is still legal to possess fish. Tonights dinner.
We then decided to play in the Delayed Harvest Catch and Release section of the Tuck. Made the switch to fly gear and single hook spinner/grub jigs. The jigs started working right away with Adam catching three really nice Brook trout back to back. I went to the next hole downstream and hooked up with two nice rainbow trout on fly-rod using a olive woolly bugger with one weight. We fished from 9:45am till about 2:00pm with most fish caught from noon till 2. (We only left so Adam could make it to the wedding on time.) It was well worth braving the cold to land some beautiful trout. As a group of three today we managed a grand slam and caught 5 trout over 16in.
