Now I know why all the cars and trucks were there today. A organization (Neuse River Foundation I think is what they said) held a "Neuse River clean up day" according to a report I just saw on the news. They supposedly cleaned up 200 miles of the Neuse.

Fished the Neuse today in Goldsboro from around noon till 5pm. Fishing was pretty slow, alot of small bites and a few good hits that didnt connect, might have been gar. Got 2 tiny channel cats and my new personal best flathead, my crapy scales showed right about 25 pounds. Used cut shad, live brim and cut brim. Flathead hit a brim head.

Buddy, that makes sense that all the cars were there for that. I would have liked to partake in the cleanup, as we all know the neuse could use the help.
Catsatnight, I would not recommend putting that boat in there. The river is very shallow, with many rocks and stumps to run into. It would be difficult enough to just get it off of the trailer there. I have an 11ft. fiberglass canoe/jon boat hybrid with a trolling motor i use, and my buddy uses a 16ft. scanoe with a 3hp gas motor. We have boat hit rocks/logs/ground many times out there. I know the river there really good at this point, and I would still not take a boat like that out there. It is up to you if you want to try, but I would only take something like that out there when the river is really high, and then you have all the debris/logs coming downstream to factor in. It is hard to find areas 5 or more feet deep there, with most of the river being 3 or less feet. Our "boats" draft about 6-8 inches, but it is possible to put in there, and if you decide to go downstream, stay to the far far far right going under the railroad bridge, because that is the only place I get through on my boat. And once you make it to crabtree creek, I would highly advise against trying to go any further downstream.

Been a while guys. Fishing for me is slow as hell on the neuse so far. Lots of bowfishing around the area we fish. Kinda sucks IMO
Maybe things will pick up soon.
Good luck to everyone
