has anybody ever fly fished new river before for reds or trout. my guess would be to go back into the creeks and to cast into the flats but ive never really done any saltwater flyfishing before. anybody got any pointers.

Yep! You're gonna have to kid-nap'em, and pull their teeth without pain killers before they'll give up there trout and drum holes.:)

I would start around creek mouths in the New River. Just start working those kind of areas and keep exploring. I've been fishing New River for a few years now and I am still learning things. As the summer goes on keep working more and more up the river.

As far as fly fishing pointers, the best thing I can tell you is search the web and find and read fly fishing articles specifically about trout and drum. All those tactics will work on the New River.

Hope this helps,

Rick

Hit the creek mouths and inside the creeks ....you should see plenty of baitfish...where there is bait there are fish...:)

Work steadly and watch for the reds to be pushing water or see schools of them in shallow water....be prepared to make some lengthy shots with the fly ....:)

Deceviers and streamers in white or bright colors work well.....

10-4 seveal ramps on New River from base on both sides of the river. Just figure where
you want to fish, tow the boat there and splash the boat and fish...
