Tiger Trout

My beautiful wife and I put together and tested out our new RIG this weekend  !!  An Outcast Pac1300 Guide raft! The new boat got some fish slime on it too!  We floated the entire DH section of the Tuckasegee river near Sylva… Other than tweaking a few things on the boat and taking some photos we did manage to catch a ton of trout. We caught them on the flyrod and light tackle spinning outfits. Black Woollybugger, san juan worm, and a buggie warm water jig fly by “bug wild” caught a bunch of trout. With the wind bad, Lynae mostly used a modified in-line spinner with one hook on a spinning rod. We did try a white jig at one point and catch a few. All in all we landed about 40+ trout and a few smallmouth/ rock bass too. The big catches were had by my wife who landed a big ol Rainbow and a Tiger trout!!!
