    Jack - We are in the 221 access walk in Campground... That site doesn't sound like it is in the area. (Edit: there is a site 4 in the drive to campground at top of hill... we will have folk there too. Sorry, wanted to make sure you found us properly)
    After all is said and done.... A heck of a lot more will be said than done

Lefty Kreh has said that New River is the best smallmouth fishery in the world (he was a big fan of river smallmouth instead of lazier lake smallmouth). The best smallmouth fishing I have even had was at Pine Island on the Winnipeg River several hours from Winnipeg, Canada. Incredible fishing- lots of citation fish (18" or bigger). These are river fish but the Winnipeg River has a dam so is a lot like a lake. Whitefish 115
    Yeah, you can't compare NC smallies to Canadian ones... anything over 12 is a big one, and my biggest in the New is a 15-16" one. But a 12" river smallie will outpull (IMO) a lmb of at least twice it's weight.


    We're not so young either...I would guess median age at this would be mid-50's.

    The South Fork of the New is nutrient poor hence a 12" fish can be 5 years old. There are some very nice smallies in the river but the little ones are so numerous that catching a big one is rare. Go ultralight and these fighting midgets are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. A typical 'nice' smallie is pictured.

    Glad to see some new folks attending!

    Thanks, I have stayed and fished there also. During the winter there is some great trout fishing near by.

    My boys have aged out of youth football, and I'm no longer coaching. I might be able to make this one work this year.
