    Default OBX in June

    Ok, I am going to the Outerbanks on June 14-21. To be more specific, I am going to Corolla. There are twelve of us going there are three dads that fish, three wives, and six kids (6yrs old being the oldest). I was looking at I believe to be a past Fly Tyer Mag the other day and it had a whole section on the outerbanks. It seemed to focus on the lower sections and Oregon Inlet.

    My question is has anyone on the board fly fished in the OBX and more specifically the Corolla area? I have an eight weight set up and will go to LRO what I need to set it up more specifically. I really do not want to drive far to fish. I think if it is a case of driving to far I would rather play with my kids on the beach. The other thing is the community that we are staying at has a fishing pier with no charge. I could take my spinning outfit or rent one if fly fishing really isn't a good option.

    Do they allow you to chum off piers?

    I have fished the Outer Banks on a couple of occasions. It has usually been the last week of October or first week of November chasing false albacore around Cape Lookout and Harker's Island.

    I suspect there should be some marshes that hold redfish, weakfish and flounder in the area that you are looking at (although I am only guessing). There is a book by Tom Earnhardt about fishing the coastal areas of the Carolinas that would be an excellent resource. It is "Fly Fishing the Tidewaters" and I am sure that Little River could get it for you. There is also a guide book to fishing the Carolinas and Georgia that is one in a series of guide books that might be another good resource.

    The good thing about saltwater is that fishing opportunities are rarely a long drive, you just need to know where to look.

    Thanks Drew, I will check into getting those books. I think the other thing I need to do is just get a good map of the area.

    North Carolina now requires a fishing license for tidal water, FYI.

    Google "Fly Girl" or "Sarah Gardner". You can readily fly fish the flats surrounding the bay side of Oregon Inlet Bridge, but a charter with Sarah is well worth the cost.
