Tuckasegee River North Carolina Float Trip Raffles

Tuckasegee River North Carolina Float Trip Raffles

We will be raffling off 2 full-day guided fly fishing float trips (a $400.00 value & includes lunch & beverages) donated to the Club by Jason from Hookers Fly Shop out of Sylva, NC. Tickets are $5.00 each. We will begin selling the tickets September 4, 2019 and will draw the winners at the March 18, 2020 evening meeting. The winners will then contact Jason and book their dates in April or May.

The Tuckasegee, known as the “Tuck,” originates around Cashiers and runs through Sylva, Dillsboro and Bryson City on its way to Fontana Lake. The river is dotted with stone fishing weirs built by Native Americans; this practice may have preceded the Cherokee in the area. The weirs are most easily viewed when water levels are low.

A float trip on the Tuck is an exhilarating way to experience fly fishing in the Southern Appalachians. The river has areas that are as wide as many western rivers, offering plenty of room for back casting. The popular Delayed Harvest section is approximately five miles long and located between the small towns of Dillsboro and Sylvia North Carolina. It is heavily stocked by the state with brown, rainbow and brook trout.

June, July & August 2019 Presidents Message

AUGUST: Well, it’s August and I feel like the summer is flying by. Football season is just around the corner and I for one can’t wait! I just returned from 10 days on the beach in Siesta Key. As I mentioned in last month’s message, I had a couple of trips planned. My Colorado trip was awesome. Spent 4 days camping on the Conejos River and fished a couple of different stretches. Nothing but dry fly action! We were able to land several rainbows in the 20”- 22” range. I’ll be heading that way again next summer.

October 16, 2019..."Fly Fishing Shell Key Perserve"

Join Club member Scott Hennet for his presentation on Fly fishing  in Shell Key Preserve. Shell Key Preserve is a 1,828-acre preserve located in the mouth of Tampa Bay, which includes a 195-acre barrier island known as Shell Key.  This is a perfect secluded getaway spot without having to travel far. The Preserve is an important sanctuary for nesting, wintering, and migrating birds, as well as a popular fishing and boating area. Access to Shell Key is limited to water vessels, including private boats or public shuttles such as the Shell Key Shuttle.

Remember this is an undeveloped barrier island and there are no facilities on it. And, while boaters can pull their boat right up to this island preserve, they should check local tide charts before navigating the shallow waters that lie to the east of Shell Key. This should be a good one!
