    From the bridge at Lillington it looks up, fast and very muddy. They were letting a lot of water through the dam at Jordan yesterday. Jordan was still way up so they will be letting it out there for a while yet. The Cape Fear was looking like the Old Cape Fear yesterday, back before Jordan Dam ! Wish I weren't old enough to remember that !!!!!

    i fished the cape last night off of NC42 near sanford... its the first stretch from the dam at jordan till the dam near lillington... i was about 2 miles north of the dam near lillington... very very muddy... water was not moving fast at all... maybe its under the other dams that it picks up speed... but up here there was alot of debrit floating coming from the jordan side... the only fish that were caught were on limb lines.
