Yes, some smaller to middle slot reds wayyyy back in the creeks hitting cranks and suspending lures, retrieved or trolled slow and steady. Target muddy banks and "fingers"; where feeder creeks empty into main creeks, preferrably around some type of structure such as docks or oyster beds.
Trout bite has slacked off a bit, (mostly because the fishermen have slacked off a bit) but plenty are still around, and the bigger ones will fill in to the backs of the creeks during and after sub-zero polar vortex events and/or freezes.... target the deeper holes on a moving tide, and retrieve your lure slllllooooooww...in fact, i would say just let it drift back to you for best results. Impart no action to the lure for the first few casts.

Question for you ******, If we put in at Haywood on the White Oak and started fishing our way down river do you think we would be in the good water for trout and maybe a red or two?

Most likely. Water has been pretty dirty up that way though

Thanks ******, I have not and can't decide on where I want to go yet for Monday. Considering the White Oak, The creeks off the Neuse around New Bern, the Trent or maybe even Sutton lake. So many possibilities...
