Re: beautiful weekd coming
I got out to the headwaters above Wilson creek on Saturday. I hiked in a long ways and had the creek to myself. Water levels were low and clear. I guess it didn't rain in the draw I was in. I didn't catch any, but saw some nice ones. The trout that were active appeared to be feeding subsurface on emerging early black stonefly nymphs. I will be tying some thin weighted black hare's ears nymphs for my next trip.
There were over 40 cars on the delayed harvest portion of the Wilson when I passed it both going in and going out. I'd be willing to bet that over 100 people fished that stretch on Saturday. I'm glad that NC is expanding the delayed harvest program, because it's obviously very popular.
Sorry, no pics.
