Great report about Slickrock, I bet I haven't fished it in 10 years either. Must have been a lake run fish still up there! 18" on a three weight, bet that was some fight. Bet that was a fairly thick fish as well.
Do you mean you fished the Cheoah river? It was rolling Sunday, where did you fish ? I hear it is full if smallies, have never fished it above Tapaco.
Thanks for the post,
