Nokies are the brook trout of the NC Piedmont, inhabiting streams that are pleasing to the eye.
Caleb and I started late. We could've stopped at an infamous carp beat on the way, but I haven't caught a Roanoke bass in 15 years. Lots of driving and a little fishing.
We started in a slack rocky pool near the bridge that looked fishy that ran .3 of a mile. Labored an hour with nothing to show. Footpaths had been carved through the woods in various locations. Perhaps pressure was a factor. Downstream was guarded by dense rock gardens, and long runs of rapids. Flanked a section and ended up in a nice run. Score!
Cool looking damsel fly
Garden harvesting, honey extracting, wild berry picking has been keeping me busy. 13 5 gallon buckets of taters in the crawl space. Growing Pearl, Kennebec, Red Pontiac, and Peruvian Blue. The PB is the largest I've ever harvested.
Ken, can I move in with you when the zombie apocalypse comes?
Looks like a good day! I've never caught a Roanoake, but they look about identical to the rock bass we have up here.
And those Kennebecs are hands-down my all-around favorite tater. They keep good, too.
