Ventured down to the Eleven Point last weekend with a friend for some camping, floating, and fishing. Average 65 degree weekends in February don’t always show up, so we were excited to get out on the water. We ended up deciding we would only float from Greer to Turner and move at a snails pace, picking apart each good looking stretch of water as we went.

Friday was bluebird skies and warm, probably nearing 70 degrees. Fishing in this weather although very enjoyable, made it a little tougher then usual, but we still managed around 13-14 rainbows a piece. Saturday brought light rain and overcast skies which I was excited about because it usually turns the fish on, and I was not mistaken. We both brought to hand around 25 trout a piece with 4 in the 17-18 inch range and one big male hitting 20. We also hooked into some smallmouth, goggle eye, and sight fished pickerel in a backwater slough, breaking off two and bringing one nice one to hand, they couldn’t stand a clouser getting stripped passed them…


The river is currently low and clear but in great shape, and the fish all seemed to be real healthy. Flies of choice were stonefly patterns, white streamers, marabou jigs, prince nymph and egg patterns. Big shout out to Brian Sloss for the great service on our shuttle and helping us out as always! A few pics attached, get out there and get some!
