The water temp at the inlet was 47.5 and was a few degrees warmer in the creek,with no stained water in sight.
We threw some Storm shrimp

Switched over to the 18mr and they would nail those also. No big fish at the first spot(18"19")

Most fish were caught in 20-30' of water with the fish being suspended at about 15-20'. The first few were taken in 40-50'

Day before the rain we threw everything and the water was crystal clear even way up river but no fish except a bunch if teeny flatties.... Today we did well but were surprised at the conditions. Weather seemed great but the water is pretty dirty from the storm... Got into the just underslot drum nice in lower river

I than headed to Umstead trying for bass and so many people kept coming buy and getting in my way I decided time to go to Lynn to my good spot of late.
