Can any one please tell me as I see there is a boat ramp at the fish and wild life area if the fishing is any good through that stretch of the river. Looking for bass and pike, also what baits seem to work good.  Thanks.

I'd skip the main river if you can. Drop in at the state park area and work your way up Rock Creek. The smallies are running into the tributaries. Spittin' Image is driving them nuts. Move up slowly and toss the lure into the rapids and work towards the edge of the eddies. You can take two to three fish from the same spot often. I caught about 15 fish in an hour and a half. The largest was 19 inches. Good luck and have fun!

Hi guys, where is the best area to put in to fish smallies? I saw a show on cable and the guy was fishing the Bourbonaisse area.

too cold still the water is a bit high hoping to get out in a couple weeks again to catch the warmer water. watch the river levels anything above 3 feet at Wilmington I wouldn't waste your time from shore. Sad

River is in great shape for any type of fishing.80deg. flow 4000 height 2.1'(shore/wade/boat)What size boat?If you have 16'or less take Rt.113 that runs along the south shoreline around 8 miles SW of Wilmington.You will see all the Hunting Area Signs.Between Hunting Area 9 and 10 is a nice boat launch.You can fish from shore there also and will be out of the bigger crowds.Or keep going a few more mile till you hit Warner Bridge Rd.They have fisherman parking all over and you can shore fish that area,it has always been pretty good to me.Any other Q's shoot me a PM Would take you out but working a ton as always, and my next 3 Sundays are booked.

Tight lines, Greg
