    Easy trip from the campsite... And he says he catches some VERY nice fish there in March.
    I wonder if it's the stretch where Gene took mwagner and I on an "aquatic hike" one day. Stretches were floatable. I caught lots of panfish and I have another story to tell, so it was still a good day. Probably has enough water in it with all the recent and forecast rain.

    Andy - any videos I have found on the Uwharrie River show low water so it may be perfect water levels for a float.

    I know how much I need to attend this meet more than ever, rain, snow, cold blowing wind does not factor in on me attending a meet. These meets getting together with some special people gives me a new outlook on life and revives ones soul for when you feel down and out. This is one of the reasons for me starting the Fort Fisher Meet to experience or try to see and feel how John does watching a angry surf and the peace, solitude of nature. If we had a meet every month I would signup to attend, no better feeling than spending time with this fine group.

    In the summer the Uwharrie has spots that require some dragging. I've kayaked it from the low water bridge all the way to Tillery (16 miles, 2 day trip). It's very very remote with few places to get out due to high banks. In March, be sure to have dry clothes in a dry bag and first aid supplies. Waders too. I've kayaked it in April and that stream is hypothermia cold. There are big smallies in there (mostly in the upper section) but not big numbers. This old man is fishing the lake.

    I may be persuaded to lake it too but would like to go up to explore the caves near the dam.

    The waders are a good idea. I think that and the dry clothes and fire supplies will be with me.
    After all is said and done.... A heck of a lot more will be said than done

    Good info to bear in mind with cold temps. I need to pickup a set of waders with boots attached for kayak launching. Any suggestions on a decent pair to buy.

    Lake for this old man also.

    Ted, while hip boots would be fine for that (frog toggs makes an inexpensive pair with boots) it's not smart to wear them while kayaking in deep water. If you go that route take them off after entering the water which means you have to put them back on while exiting. A pair of regular waterproof boots would be fine as long as you mount and dismount shallow. Or just use wading shoes and put on dry socks and shoed when you get in the yak.

    Ted Iím happy to see that youíre going to try to make it. Iím not going to try wading but either lake or River is fine with me. I have a feeling that water levels will be high no matter what we do. Still bringing Bar b que for Friday night. Iíll throw something else in the cooler for Saturday just in case...

    So I'm going bring all my boats and make the decision on lake or river depending on number at each.
    Donnie's buddy has my spare yak and then there will either be Slayer 14 or a frontier 10. Just be warned if you hits rocks in the frontier you have to say sorry to Ted. I believe he will know deep down in his soul that his former yak has took damage

    The frontier 10 was a great kayak and hated to sell it. Will never forget my first float with Darrell and Ray on the Yadkin and my first chain pickerel, small mouth. Good to see you enjoying the 10.
