Anyone tried the new reservoir in Yadkin County? Curious to see if there are any fish.
I despise having to worry with speeding boats and getting creamed by one. If I go to waters with big boats I stay around the edges basically exclusively, especially during busy times.I wanted to take the wife there so she could paddle around and not have worry about speed boats while I fish.
I went to check it out a couple Sundays ago and there was only a few boats out there on the water. It was beautiful that day and very warm out. Lots of people using the actual park trails and kiddy area though.I wanted to take the wife there so she could paddle around and not have worry about speed boats while I fish.
The place is surprisingly big. There's quite a bit of water there that you can't see from the parking area. Bigger the better. Less cramped.I road up there during lunch one day last week and there were several boat trailers and pick ups in the landing area, but I did not see anyone out on the water. I am looking forward to taking the kayak up there.
They may consider it at some point. I wouldn't mind. It just opened though so I'd say it may be a while.Glad to see people are getting some info. There had been numerous posts on this before the opening, so it's cool to hear people have looked into it.
I'll definitely be there once I get home from school, and I might have to consider the pass. An annual pass there is about the same price as fishing Salem Lake (which I imagine is pretty similar) 3 or 4 times.
I wonder if they'd consider putting hybrids in.
I want a hybrid in the yak.I imagine the two will play out pretty similarly based on their sizes and locations. Salem does have hybrids and flatheads, though.
The yadkin reservoir will probably be more peaceful and remote. Salem Lake has hundreds of people using the trail around it on any given day, not that it bothers me that much. As others have mentioned in the past though, the double dipping, charging to launch a boat and to fish, can be a pain.
What did the one hit that you caught?Yup. I think it winds up being like $8-9. And I'm not sure about the annual pass, but it's a lot more than $30, iirc.
I caught one that was probably a couple pounds out of there last summer, and even then I thought I hooked something big. I'd like to pursue them specifically.
