    Good to know, Thanks. Is there any place to launch below it?

    Think I found the dam. Looks like some sort of water treatment facility right there. You would sure have a hard time finding the dam if you weren't looking for it. But I think I might have found an access point below it, plenty of time to check it out before they get here.Click image for larger version.

    i know a few people have walked back there and fished but im sure they were tresspassing we usually walk into little river from the reain trussle further down. you wont get a boat up it from the river thats for sure. you may be able to yak up to there but it would be tough.

    Shad are like hamburgers at a cookout. You don't mind sharing with a few unexpected visitors but trout are like when you put nice steaks on the grill you kinda hope no one smells them and shows up hungry...

    You can drive within 25 yards of the LR at the 70 bridge. There is a small two track down to the bank covered in grass. Looks like an easy put it below the dam. I drove down there today with my daughter and spoke to a police officer at the auto part store close by. He said it was city of Goldsboro property and its not fenced or gated so he was good with putting in there. I figured it would be state DOT, maybe it's just city jurisdiction for him. I'll look into it further but it's wide open and super easy to get a yak down or up. Looking on the map it would still be a long float to the neuse from there. If the shad come up there it would be pretty easy to get into it. I'm still going to check on the legalities but there is no sign or fence or anything that would be in the way, it's almost like it was intentionally made for Yaker's.

    Hope this is the right place. Spending some time at Myrtle Beach the third week of February. Figured the Shad might be running down there. Anybody know of a river near Myrtle Beach where Shad might be running in Feb?

    Definitely will be on the Neuse in March.

    that's great to know, i checked that place out last week and it looks great. I definitely plan on dropping a yak in there a few times this year. It almos looked to me like people were driving down there and possible putting a jon or canoe in as i have seen duck hunters in there the last few months. I was gonna just park almost right in front of the guard rail right there, or off to side where i've seen them park. anyways, even if parking becomes a problem there i got a plan to get dropped off a few times and picked up at the 117 ramp, should be a nice drift hope to see ya there...sooner than later
