Hopefully Richard will see this and post a reply. If not, call Carolina Mountain Sports in Statesville. Richard knows the New pretty well and is always willing to share information. I can tell you the water level and clarity looks really good right now, or at least it did last weekend.

It's getting pretty late in the season for smallies, though. When the temperatures cool off, they tend to go semi-dormant. That usually happens toward the end of Oct.

It may be a good time to try some salt water fishing....

I went over the S Fork of the New today on my way back from the OBX and it is clear

Remember what Captain Jack said, bigger, deeper, slower. He would work a fly 1 foot in 1 minute. In the worst weather he caught 22 smallmouth, all but 7 were over 5 pounds.

I miss him.

Can't help much...haven't been on the New in several weeks. General feedback I get is that after the first frost, the fly fishing gets to be a lost cause. However, if I were going, "deeper...slower" would be good advice I think...but probably not with fly rod. Only report I've gotten was about a week ago. Kayaker caught a Musky on one of the first few casts of the day. Nothing else the rest of the day.

If I were going to fish the New now...I might be inclined to focus on areas where hatchery and dh waters flow in...especially where dh water enters the New...
