Elizabeth/Lafayette River Reports Last Few Days

Postby kendalloz » Thu Sep 15, 2011 4:35 pm

Work slowed down a tad (end of fiscal year) so got out to fish the local waters several times this week. Water is still 80! But some specks are around in usual fall spots and nicely a few gray trout as well. The specks have been small. Heard a few larger specks have come from Little Creek. No red drum on fly this week. Sorry no pics...

And yet at the Haven Creek ramp 2 weeks ago I had a guy telling me he was catching them up to 30 inches at Hampton Blvd Bridge the night before. I didn't believe him then, after fishing around the bridge that day I really didn't believe him.

from the info i have gathered from talking to several biologist that reds have the better spawns on hurricane years---might be the influx of fresh water??????

MB, I'd actually tend to believe the 30-inchers are around (2 years old) it is the smaller ones that are missing. The larger ones will not hit a fly too well until later in the season when they get more aggressive before leaving the backwaters for the winter.
