Default Tuck DH

Anyone been fishing the Tuck DH waters?
I might be up that way beginning of December. In fact, will be there Friday, December 1.
Was hoping to hop in the water and catch a few. The Tuck DH is where I got my first taste of FlyFishing thanks to a wonderful gift from my GF. We are heading back for an Xmas party in asheville, but she's made plans to stop in Sylva area the day before so I could revisit those waters after having learned a thing or two.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Default NC DH

The DH and other stocked waters in North Carolina right now hang on delivery of enough magic markers from Staples to color up all those shiners they raise in the hatchery to look like rainbows, browns and brookies! I understand the brookies are the toughest for the hatchery workers to color up due to the complex colors and getting that leading white edge on each fin is sometimes a prickly business.

I imagine that a lot of the action will depend on the actions of Duke Energy when you are up there but you probably already knew that. I would not be surprised if Drifter is up at the Happy Trout Lodge a day or 2 after thanksgiving and could probably give though a first hand bird's eye review of the conditions from his front porch.

I floated it with him back in October and it was a slow day but that means nothing obviously as far as conditions in a few weeks go.

Shoot him a PM when you get a chance.

Default Wading with West Fork release

Before I drive 2 hours Id like to confirm that, for example, the 1/4 mile stretch above Webster bridge is wadeable with studded boots during the 1 rise from West Fork release. I was up there once when the water came up and it nearly swept me away. Thus the studded boots. Looks to me like East fork release results in 1.3 rise while a West Fork release is a 1 rise based on the Cullowhee gauge.

It was my first time on the Tuck and I will be back! Camped just out of Bryson city on the delayed harvest section. Only fished about an hour so I can't give a full report but I caught this nice brown on a large steamer and also another decent rainbow. Check out grumpy bear campground. It's right on the river. Can't wait to go back. Good luck

Grumpy Bear Campground is where we stayed as well. Launched our boat right from the campsite. We must not have missed you by much. The place is very nice.
