    Tammy, the neuse near smithfield looks more like a creek than a river. Hopefully we'll get some rain soon. You might try looking for some of the deeper spots where water may be pooled. Surely you'll find some cats in one of em.

    There is a really deep hole just upriver from the 43 bridge by weyerhauser, there is one just past the bridge where the island splits the river and there is one if you go on the right side of the island, there will be a channel on your left in about 300 yds, just before that channel there is a 30' hole. the one by the bridge is about 28'. I have fished there a couple times but havent caught anything, I am sure they are there but I think it just wasnt producing when I was there. Hope this helps

    the river around smithfield is the lowest for the longest i can remember. i wish they would build about a 15foot dam somewhere between smithfield and brogden.
