We are headed to Linville Gorge this week Wednesday-Saturday to do some camping and fishing. This will be my first trip into the Gorge and I'm looking for a little help as to what type of water I will be looking at and how the fishing will be.
Check out the post on the gorge from 5/1 post in the mountains castegory of Fishing Reports. Some more discussion. I think you'll find a variety of water...some easily fished and some not...like in the kayak video. A few trout...a few bass. Not a great trout fishery.
Ended up not doing much in the gorge. Fished the Linville River above the falls and limited out the first day for three of us with fish being from 10-14 inches. Also fished the Linville from Lake Harbor dam down to 221 and caught around 10 fish. Second day we met a friend inside Lake Harbor and spent the day there fishing the Linville above the lake in the development. Caught tons of fish from 12 inches to 3 pounds. Had a great time and caught a lot of fish!
