Default My First Middle Prong Little Pigeon River Catch

On Saturday I finally got to fish for the first time this year.


Please excuse the blurry photo.


Ramsay Cascades Trail MPLPR crossing.


It was beautiful evening, but the water was still a little high for me. It should be right on today and following.

Need to speak with you.

Thank You, for sharing!!!

Many people who live 4+ hours away have been here at least twice already

You need to get out more. I know you have the Little River in your backyard and all, but surely you aren't THAT old yet

Glad you got out and thanks for the post. I couldn't guess accurately the water level with you up there although it looked pretty high. If you had a pic upstream from the bridge I could probably guess well. Also be sure to check out the bridge gauge where greenbrier rd. and 321 meet. I'm guessing anything over 1.4 would be unfishable in most places with things starting to get uncomfortable for most around a foot or 1.2. 4 inches was pretty low. 8 inches was about perfect. Would love for others to chime in on this.

I am indeed backslidden. Thanks for the pep talk.





These are pics of stream above the bridge.
What does your calibrated eye level gauge say?

Getting to be the high side of good. Of the 2 places you see the water falling in your pic. If there is no water coming off the left falls and right falls is about 1/2 current flow showing much more of v notch on right falls its really low. No water on left and right looking about same in you pic (maybe little less) is good low. No flow on left, right looking like your shot is medium. Few drops starting to fall over left but not so wide over (probably 1/3 as wide as you pic of L) where most water comes through left crack and not over the dome rock still is medium high. Your shot is high as would be comfortable for me (higher than some like it). I am very familiar with whitewater and know how these conditions will most likely effect me and am comfortable swimming Class 4 whitewater. Everyone please be careful with any water in this stretch over medium as the currents can be very swift and find safe limits that are appropriate to ones ability. When the left falls is a solid 4 foot wide fall with the top middle rock and v slot of left falls is under the curtain of falls it's time to pick another stream

Yeah but twice is about it... pretty disturbing on my end as well...
Nice to see some MPLPR scenery... still have yet to make it over that way.
