Would any body with the current knowledge of the lower eno's condition be willing to share? Im planning on making a trip to durham this weekend to do some fly fishing for carp and am mostly interested in water clarity and perhaps water levels. All these storms this week have me wondering if it would be worth the almost 2 hour trip or if i should just head the same distance to the beach to hunt redfish. I checked the usgs site and levels look decent in the upper eno. Im mostly interested in the lower around the confluence of the flat and beyond. Are there still a lot of boats chasing white bass also?
Thanks

Even though the Eno wasn't hit too hard, it'll have a good stain for a few days. The Flat got hit a little harder, so anything downstream of the Flat confluence is going to have even more stain, borderline muddy. Granted I don't fish the Eno or Flat that often, I still wouldn't expect "clear" (24" visibility or greater) conditions for at least ~5-6 days of no rain from today. Hopefully someone who's closer to that area could give you a first hand assessment.

In the late Summer for Fall, these Piedmont flows clear up much quicker. In the Spring it takes at least twice as long to clear up.

Good luck!

All else equal, I'd try for some reds if those are your only two choices.
