    Although the hurricane put a serious damper on a lot of the ENC river fishing, I'd imagine you can still catch a few in New River. Put in at the bridge and go up river. Be careful, there's some underwater hazards, a few big gators and plenty of snakes.

    The Trent and Neuse Rivers around New Bern had some really good bass fishing prior to the storm. A lack of rain probably has produced a higher salt content on all these rivers, so you may have to go a little further up these rivers to catch a few.

    Good luck and be safe with your kids out there.

    Thanks for the info. Have no boat currently. I have tried some of the smaller parts more up river but see more salt water species than fresh. Wish I could find some good pond fishing.
